History of Tucker 4H
Began around 1935.
Met at what was known as the Tucker School (hence the club name) in the early years at Hwy C & V.
The first general leader was the Tucker School teacher. At that time it was typical for the school teacher to become the general leader.
We begin each meeting with the 4-H Pledge:
Tucker 4-H Club is a medium-sized club in Racine County with approximately 75 members.

4-H in the United States and Canada is a youth organization administered by the Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service of the United States Department of Agriculture, with the mission of "engaging youth to reach their fullest potential while advancing the field of youth development." The name represents four personal development areas of focus for the organization: head, heart, hands, and health.
The goal of 4-H is to develop citizenship, leadership, and life skills of youth through mostly experiential learning programs. Though typically thought of as an agriculturally focused organization as a result of its history, 4-H also focuses on citizenship, healthy living, and science, engineering and technology programs.
