Cosper is a 17-year-old senior at Valencia High School in Los Lunas. During his time in 4-H he has worked on projects relating to market beef, market swine, wood working and photography.

"My most memorable experience in 4-H was when I got the chance to go to a youth get-away and be a camp councilor. I got a chance to help younger 4-Hers and teach them to expand their leadership abilities," Cosper said. "As an officer, I would like to improve my public speaking abilities and hone the skills I gained while being on the state diplomat team last year."

Cosper said he plans on going to college and would also like to strengthen the 4-H program in the county.

"4-H is a great place to develop leadership skills as well as an opportunity to make great friends and create great memories," Cosper said.
