4-H Scholar Spotlight

Brianna McBride

Brianna McBride was just 6 years old when she became involved in Colorado’s 4-H program as a Clover Bud. Today, as a fresh graduate of Windsor High School, her enthusiasm for 4-H is as strong as ever.

“I definitely learned a lot about how to be a good sport in winning and losing, and how to work within your club family,” she said. “There’s a lot of value in learning to work through issues and problems.”

Brianna is currently serving on Colorado State FFA Officer team, but eventually plans to attend Iowa State University and major in food science. “I would like to go into nutrition and business, creating products for consumers tied to dairy,” she said.

Showing and judging dairy cattle was Brianna’s primary focus in 4-H. Her experiences included traveling to the National Livestock Exposition in Louisville, Kentucky and attending a dairy show in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and the World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin. This summer will bring the bittersweet event of showing for the final time at the Weld County Fair.

Brianna says the support of her family and the Weld County Extension helped her succeed for more than a decade in 4-H. They’ve also helped create a life-long advocate for the program. “I want to become a leader down the road,” she said.

No doubt she will be a great one.
