Alan SmithAlan Smith has supported 4H his entire life—even by going with his mother who was an Extension Home Economist.  Alan lived in a multitude of states always understanding the importance of 4H in his life, as well as others.
In Ringgold County, Alan is the owner and publisher of the Mount Ayr Record News.  His coverage of 4H is continual.  Rarely does one find the weekly edition of his paper without a 4H article or something from Extension featured.  His coverage is unbiased, timely, informative, and interesting reading.  His support of youth who write 4H news is exceptional.  Alan has employed 4H members to help with the annual fair edition of the Record News where photos of approximately 50 youth are featured showing their 4H exhibit. Every 4H exhibitor has pride in knowing they have the spotlight in the 4H edition of the Record News.
Alan has covered 4H basketball tournaments, the mud pulls, day camps, 4H County Council events, award programs, and every event at the county fair.  This coverage has allowed those who want to know more about 4H and kept up to date with the youth activities to read about it and to view photos. 

The hours Alan Smith has dedicated to 4H throughout the years is phenomenal, always putting 4H members at the top of the to-do list.
