Ted Johnson has made countless contributions to the Acadia 4-H program as well as statewide. His most notable contribution to the program is his ability to motivate students and promote their self-worth. He works tirelessly day and night to empower youth to set goals and reach their potential and beyond. Mr. Johnson makes 4-H a family affair. No matter what the project was he made sure to try and get every member of the family involved.
Mr. Johnson was involved with Acadia’s 4-H program for 25 years before his retirement. During that time, he served as a 4-H Extension Agent and Volunteer for Acadia Parish. Throughout his years serving 4-H, Mr. Johnson earned the program several recognitions. For over ten years between the years of 1982-1992, Mr. Johnson helped the Acadia 4-H Program earn the Nolan Reech Award. He encouraged many of his 4-H members to put in the extra effort to make it to the national level. Because of his efforts, over 350 of 4-H members participated in a wide variety of national events.
Mr. Johnson is known as a very humble, respectable man who does everything he can to improve the 4-H program.
