FBP focuses on youth development during 4-H hands-on clinic

PIKE COUNTY, Ohio -- April 19, 2023 -- Earlier this month, Fluor-BWXT (FBP) partnered with the Ohio State University (OSU) Extension Office of Pike County for 4-H Youth Development by providing a photography instructor for their hands-on clinic held in Waverly. The event was designed to help 4-H members working on their non-livestock projects to “learn by doing.” Educational sessions focused on topics such as nutrition, natural resources, cake decorating, Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) and photography.

In April, Fluor-BWXT’s (FBP) Michelle Teeters led a small-group photography session for 4-H members at Grace United Methodist Church.

FBP’s Michelle Teeters led the small-group photography portion of the clinic which started in the classroom and turned into a photo field trip in the building, nearby courtyard and an area business.

Twenty-six 4-H members attended the clinic held at Grace United Methodist Church. Clinic participants were also given supplies to help them complete their projects.

“We are thankful for the support of community members and topic experts who donated their time to teach the youth,” said Joy Bauman, OSU Extension Pike County 4-H youth development educator.

“Teaching youth life skills they can use as they grow and continue toward their future career path is one of the most valuable things we do in 4-H, and this clinic is one way we can do that,” Bauman said.

Bauman said the feedback from clinic participants and their parents was fantastic, and that they plan to continue and grow the educational event in 2024.
