Hannah Warwick meets stat Sen. Judy Warnick, who represents the 13th Legislative District, which includes Lincoln County.
Senator Judy Warnick Shares Value of 4-H & FFA

Last week I enjoyed the opportunity to talk to State Sen. Judy Warnick concerning Washington State FFA and 4-H. After the meeting, I got to learn more about her and her 'involvement in the 4-H program.
Warnick has participated in 4-H since she was a little girl of age 8 up until she was 18, while her brother and sister were also in FFA. She didn't want to stop her involvement in this wonderful program so she decided to become a leader once her kids joined 4-H. After all the years of being a member and a leader, she dedicated 30 years serving the 4-H program.
After being in 4-H for 30 years, Warnick gained great skills that helped her tremendously in her life. One skill that helped her the most is her public speaking skills. Another skill that has helped her was learning to be organized by keeping accurate records of her projects. Also, she learned that the world is much bigger than just herself. Both of these skills and life lessons have helped in her business and her time that she has been involved in state politics.
Warnick has tons of amazing memories of being involved in 4-H. She loved going horseback riding. One of her most fond memories was going trail riding through the orchards while looking for Easter eggs that had been placed in the trees. She also loved going to the state fair with her daughter and the 4-H members.
Being a part of the agriculture committee, she looks forward to seeing how the 2017 tax cut will affect the farmers in Eastern Washington. She hopes it will affect them in positive ways.
Her advice to any current 4-H and FFA members would be to look for changes that can help others and look into the careers that follow up with your passion and interests.
After talking with Sen. Warnick I learned that even though we graduate and leave high school, that doesn't mean our involvement in FFA and 4-H has to end. It's actually an opportunity to mentor and help others get started in FFA
and 4-H. As Warnick said, the world is much bigger than herself.
