|Brian Mc Neill|
Minnesota 4-H True Leader
Brian Mc Neill and his three siblings were raised on a dairy farm in western Minnesota. Resources were limited growing up, but 4-H gave Brian an avenue to explore opportunities outside his community and expand skills he would need throughout life.
“Our parents worked hard, so hard to ensure we had the essentials. There wasn’t much more available to us beyond that. But they gave us 4-H. And in 4-H, mentors helped me discover a whole world of opportunity.”
Hard work and determination were of high value in Brian’s family. He was able to apply and grow those skills in many 4-H experiences, especially during a 4-H entrepreneurship project he participated in as a senior in high school.
