What a fantastic story and tribute you wrote about my very first 4-H leader. Barbara Ann Riggs Stiles in the item “She shattered a glass ceiling.” She along with my uncle, Ed Burdette, were our leaders of the Montgomery County (Maryland) Holstein 4-H Club, and as a kid our team was always close to the top, if not the winner, of the Hoard’s Dairyman Cow Judging Contest.
Brought tears to my eyes thinking back about what she taught me and coached me as a kid growing up outside rural Washington, D.C., area. She truly was one amazing lady.
Thank you for the amazing story and trip down memory lane.
