Council Officers :
Hello, my name is Allison Halfmann. I am from Glasscock County and I live in a small town called Garden City. I am an active 4-H member who also enjoys sports and academic competitions. My dad is a farmer, which put me, my brother, and 2 sisters spending long hours together in the barn and fields. This made me grow closer to my family and they have greatly impacted who I am today. I love spending time outside and hanging out with my friends. I am just your typical country girl who is passionate about 4-H and following her dreams. I am so excited to serve as the D-6 President. I can’t wait to lead this amazing

Outside of 4-H, I have participated in other organizations such as FFA, UIL, and football. Having been elected to several leadership positions this year, 1st Vice President on the D6 4-H Council, and 2nd Vice President for the Glasscock 4-H Club, I am excited to see what my future has in store, and I look forward to serving my peers on the county, district and state levels.

Brantly Hoover, Health & Safety Officer, Midland County
Hi, my name is Brantly Hoover. I am 16 years old (as of September 19, 2017) and I’ve been a member of Midland County 4-H for the past 8 years. I have been showing sheep and goats since I was 4 years old and I have owned my own herd of ewes. My mom was the extension agent in Midland County when I was little and through her taking me to all of the meetings, I began to love 4-H and all that goes with it. One of my most favorite memories is going to State 4-H Roundup when I was about 4. This year I am the 2017-2018 Midland County 4-H Community Club President. I have always had the dream of becoming a District 6 4-H council member and later becoming a Texas 4-H green jacket. This year I achieved one of those goals by becoming the 2017-2018 D6 4-H Health and Safety Officer. I take part in many activities through 4-H including showing sheep and goats, shooting archery, and taking part in the Texas 4-H Livestock Ambassador and Agriculture Advocacy programs. My favorite part of 4-H is the opportunity to meet and work with other 4-H’ers from across the nation. Building lifelong friendships and making the world a little better place.
