    May 21, 2021

    Our thanks to Larry Harris as he retires today and concludes 20 years of service to Ohio 4-H. His tireless efforts created a 4-H shooting sports program that is nationally recognized. A colleague shared that Larry put his “heart and soul into creating a program where youth can safely learn about and use firearms.” Larry treated youth as equals and helped them believe in themselves. Larry's contributions and passion for the Ohio 4-H shooting sports program is a legacy that will continue for years to come. Thank you, Larry!
