4-H Youth Development

Brandy DeVous, SW District Representative

Brandy DeVous of Canadian County is a Southwest District Representative. She is a senior at Mustang High School.

“In my project areas,” DeVous said,  “I teach younger 4-H’ers how to give back to their communities through baking bread and making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to give to the homeless. I also enjoy teaching 4-H members about healthy living and My Food Plate at Workshops such as Get Moving With 4-H.”

She does this all while serving as a leadership role model for younger 4-H members and encouraging them in their own project areas.

“My first State 4-H Round-Up, it when I got my first taste of how widespread this organization is,” DeVous said. “The motivation and passion of the State Council leaders before me, pushed me to achieve my goals of becoming a State 4-H Officer, State 4-H Ambassador, and holding a Southwest District office along with becomeing the leader I am today.”

This year she hopes to increase participation at county, district, and state events.

“I want to actively share with younger and older 4-H members by traveling to other counties and districts, my love for this organization and what it truly has to offer them,” DeVous said. “Oklahoma 4-H is great and I am excited to share this.”

DeVous said she lives by a quoute from William W. Purkey: “You’ve got to dance like nobody’s watching, love like you’ll never be hurt, sing like there’s nobody listening, and live like it’s heaven on earth.”
