Are Saying About Our Speakers:
About Betty Swinners:
She challenged my thinking. Betty was great. She was not an academic
person, she has lived what she talks about. I enjoyed Betty's honesty
and forthrightness regarding cultural realities. Betty's approach
integrated games and discussion with program. Betty gave me a much
greater appreciation for African American and Latino cultures. The
entire presentation was great. This has been the best diversity
program I have been to over my years of involvement with 4-H youth
development. Betty was a very good speaker, she made me think.
