John Stamper of Bossier Parish was an avid supporter of 4-H throughout his career as an educator and continued to support Bossier Parish 4-H as a volunteer leader after his retirement. During his many years as an educator (1956-1984), his 4-H Clubs were always very active and enthusiastic. After his retirement he remained involved with 4-H as a volunteer leader for the Bossier Parish Outdoor 4-H Club. At the annual National Hunting and Fishing Day at the Bodcau Wildlife Management Area he conducted educational and competitive events on leaf collection, compass and pacing treasure hunts, tree measuring, fire building, outdoor cooking and many other topics. He also planned and conducted the club's overnight campout each year. For Stamper's last year as the Outdoor Club's leader, he invited the group to camp out at his camp. Mr. Stamper passed away in 1999.
