Melissa Keller Pays it Forward

SUNY Cobleskill’s Melissa Keller ’21 (above, center) is featured in a “Lancaster Farming” article, about her work with 4-H and subsequent involvement with the network as an alumna. Keller started the Genesee County 4-H Chops & Hocks 4-H Club, which is “focused on friendships, industry knowledge, basic production practices, the use of pork beyond the pig, and exploring the need and wants of a group of swine enthusiasts.”

From the article, “‘Melissa always wanted to add a club to the county,” said her mother, Julie Keller. “I see all that she has learned at Cobleskill and encouraged her to put this education into motion. Some members were seeking a new way to learn about pork production and Melissa gathered their ideas and is putting them into motion.'”
