Wakulla County 4-H members have started a podcast.  For the first few episodes, members have interviewed adults who were 4-H members in their youth. Special thanks to community partner Doug Apple of Wave 94.  Wave 94 has aired the podcast episodes in a weekly rotation throughout the month of December.

Carrie Boyd is an entrepreneur and lawyer who has worn many hats including elected official, business owner, lawyer, writer, and lobbyist, yet she is most proud of being “Mom” to Andrew (age 12) and Anabel (age 8) and wife to her college sweetheart, Ryan. Carrie grew up on a farm with thousands of acres and has an enduring love of the land and animals. Carrie’s love of the land and serving people shows in her dedication to the real estate company, LiveGive850, she and her husband founded during the pandemic in 2020; all of the company’s net profits are donated to local nonprofits in the 850 region. Carrie credits any of the values she holds dear such as serving others, improving relationships, and lifelong learning to her time in 4-H and having been raised in a farm family environment.
