4-H is teaching students life lessons

Friday afternoon, W.S. Neal Elementary School student Cameron Coleman sold his pig he received on Dec. 4 for $553.50 at the sale in Brewton to culminate the Escambia County Extension Agency's annual 4-H Swine Show and Sale. Cameron was one of 23 students across the county who competed the project of raising a pig to be sold and to be turned into what we all love best – sausage, pork chops, bacon, ribs, hams and possibly a Slim Jim.

I've followed the 4-H projects over the years from pigs, cows and chickens and it's a program I've fallen in love with.

I doubt many of the students who participate...
