MOUNDRIDGE – To further enhance the leadership development programs of Seward County, Mid Kansas Cooperative (MKC) is pleased to present $1,000 to the Seward County 4-H Leadership Development fund. 

A large portion of MKC’s donations go toward programs that promote ag education and leadership development, alleviate hunger in its communities and improve or enhance community safety. 

MKC believes the leadership programs available through 4-H are outstanding and that they help develop the leadership skills of today’s youth. 

“This is a great opportunity for us to assist local 4-H organizations that play such a positive role in the lives of so many young people within our trade territory,” Dave Christiansen, president and CEO, MKC said. “It is exciting to think those same youth will be the future leaders of our communities.”

“This donation will help cover the cost for 4-H members to attend camps, leadership conferences and other activities pertaining to 4-H,” Kylee Harrison, Seward County Extension agent, said. “It’s an important part of 4-H to get involved in the different activities offered so that they learn the importance of head, heart, hand and health that coincides with growth and leadership.”

Funds totaling more than $175,000 have been donated to 4-H since 2006 with matched contributions from the Land O’ Lakes, Inc. Foundation. 

 In 2019, MKC made donations to Butler, Dickinson, Ellsworth, Harper, Harvey, Haskell, Kingman, Marion, McPherson, Meade, Morris, Pottawatomie, Reno, Rice, Riley, Saline, Seward, Sumner and Wabaunsee counties.
