Beran: All ribbons count

I am sharing some wise words from a fellow 4-H agent today and it is a great follow up to the county fair and in preparation for the Kansas State Fair. Growing up I was quick to hide any ribbons that were not purples! Yes, we all have those purple ribbons, buckles or duffle bags in our goals to win…but what about the “other” ribbons.

Cowley College supports 4-H programs

Showing their support for the rural community and agriculture in the county, Cowley College purchased a market steer during Monday night’s Cowley County Fair 4-H/FFA Market Livestock Auction held at the Winfield Fairgrounds. The 1,210-pound reserve division champion was presented by Madison McGee, who will be a junior at Arkansas City High School. Madison has shown animals at the Fair for nearly a decade. The college began purchasing cattle from local 4-H members back in 2010 as a way to not only support local 4-H programs and their students but also as a way to give back to the community. Cowley College president Dr. Randy Smith and former Board Chair Dennis K. Shurtz represented the college at the Fair.
