That includes Kelli Buxton, a member of the Bits and Spurs 4-H Club.

She’s been busy helping Ellis County Extension 4-H and Youth Agent Susan Schlichting designing a 4-H display in the window of Northglen Antiques in downtown Hays.

Schlichting says 4-H is the largest youth development organization in the world, where members learn leadership, citizenship, and life skills:

This week includes 4-H National Youth Science Day.   Schlichting is working with Ellis County students to introduce youth to the importance of geographic information systems (GIS) and geographic positioning systems (GPS) as they design and map their ideal park.
