Dear Barry County 4-H
Hello! My name is Marissa Tucker, and I am excited to introduce myself as the new Youth Program Assistant for Barry County.
I am a Cassville native, and my family has lived and farmed here for many generations. I was involved in the Horner Ridge Runners 4-H club when I was young, and I enjoyed showing Jersey cattle and judging dairy and beef cattle. I graduated from Cassville High School in 2012, and I studied General Agriculture/Agriculture Communications at Missouri State University. I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in July after studying abroad in Australia. I am happy to be back in Barry County so I can give back to the community that supported me so much!
I am so excited about projects that have been added since I was a member, such as computers and programming, global education, and robotics. These changes reflect the growth that has occurred in 4-H, and I know that there will be more great changes in the future.
I look forward to serving the 4-H members of Barry County and I can’t wait to meet you!
