4-H celebrates 100 years
Houston County Courier - October 2007

Houston County was well represented at the Texas 4-H Centennial Day Celebration held Oct. 9. 
The event was the official beginning of the yearlong celebration of 100 years of 4-H in Texas. 
Over 600 4-H members, volunteer leaders, and Texas extension service staff converged on Jacksboro, where the first 4-H meeting in Texas was held 100 years ago. 
The program included a history of 4-H in Texas, as well as current and future opportunities in 4-H. 
Among the dignitaries speaking to the crowd was Dr. Nelson Daniels, PhD, who is serving as interim associate administrator in the 1890 Extension Program from Prairie View A&M University. 
Upon hearing that Dr. Daniels was from Houston County, Susan Quattrini, who was attending the celebration, made arrangements to meet him and learned that he is a former member of Crockett 4-H, who showed a variety of animals in the Houston County Fair as well as being active in the overall 4-H program. 
He is a 1986 graduate of Crockett High School and the son of Mae Belle Daniels of Crockett.
