On September 17, 2017 the Buffalo County 4-H Leaders Association adopted new bylaws that developed a true youth-adult partnership. Youth and adult leaders in Buffalo County 4-H are now officially meeting jointly. The Buffalo County 4-H Youth Leaders Council was dissolved in an effort to work together and better recognize youth voice. As a result of the action, youth and adult officers were elected for the first time. The inaugural officer team includes: (back) Austin George, Friends of Buffalo County 4-H Representative; Patty George, Vice President; Michele Loesel, Treasurer; Cara Lee Wiersgalla, President; Kaleb Kryzszton, Vice President; Stephanie Foust, Secretary; (front) Barbara Dittrich, Treasurer; Naomi Fogel, President; Sofia Sandberg and Julia Moats, Co-Secretaries.
