Weida Ringly 

A Lifelong Volunteer

Weida Ringly is no stranger to 4-H. In fact, her commitment to the 4-H program has been woven through her life, starting when she was a fourth grader and extending to today.
Ringly, who grew up in Olive Branch, Miss., was a member of both her school and community programs and focused primarily on the dairy project. 
“I have seen the value of 4-H on youth development up close and personal, and I believe it is the best youth-development organization available today,” says Ringly. “We need to give back – both with donations and time. Youth are our future and there are many great opportunities just waiting for someone to give back.”
