The new school year has officially started for students at Rabun County Schools, and as of August 1 the year has also started for Joey Eller, new 4-H Educator for Rabun County Schools.
Eller was born and raised in Habersham County and has been a member of 4-H since he was in fifth grade.
“It was always such a huge part of my life,” Eller said about 4-H and why he is passionate about helping with kids in the program.
He said that he continued volunteering and was a camp counselor for 4-H even after graduating high school. Eller later graduated from Georgia State University with a degree in history.
Eller said that being involved in 4-H helps teach children skills and tools for life that they might not necessarily focus on in class.
“It helps teach kids lessons about life and gives them the tools they need to become productive adults,” Eller said.
