Tony Eskridge elected 2015 Tennessee 4-H Congress Governor
Since its beginning in 1948, Congress has given more than 33,900 4-H’ers and volunteer leaders firsthand experience in state government. 4-H Congress is truly a citizenship experience. In addition to experiencing life in the state capital, 4-H members learn about civic engagement, including state government, service to others and the election process. This year's elected officers include a CBHS sophomore elected Governor - Tony Eskridge. The newly elected officers will preside over the Congress events next year in Nashville. While in the state capitol, delegates to Tennessee 4-H Congress have the opportunity to sit in the seat of their elected officials to the state legislature and actually vote on a bill. They also have the opportunity to state their views and try to influence their peers regarding the bills introduced during the "Know Your Government" sessions of Congress.

Paws for Paper: FedEx Cares and CBHS
FedEx Cares, along with a few young gentlemen from CBHS and one young lady from SBA, hosted Paws for Paper for the Tunica Humane Society (THS), one of the only No-Kill Shelters in the Mid-South and it has a large population of puppies, kittens, cats, and dogs.  Recently the Roof was in need of repair and as FedEx went out to help, they notice that the Newspaper room was flooded and the stock piles of newspapers were ruined. FedEx Cares along with CBHS and SBA volunteers did a “Paws for Paper” drive that not only gathered over 500 lbs. of paper, but the paper was sorted by freshmen Keagan Voss, Ryan Thomas, Nick Myers, Tres Crittenden, and Molly McHughes.  The sorting took many hours and several days.  First they gathered papers from their neighbors and/ or work place.  They then sorted the papers so that any volunteer at the shelter would have an easy work day.  Sorting meant that they took the slick papers or the coupons out and folded the papers for easy stacking on the shelves. Kim Wallis, FedEx Cares Rep, commended the young volunteers on their neatness and eye to detail.  Being that THS was in such need for the Newspaper, Paws for Paper did a three-week drive in totaling over 500lbs of ready to use Papers and each volunteer earned 8 hours.
