As a long-term goal, O'Reilly plans to turn her eyes to more alternative delivery methods. "4-H is an amazing program --it has so much to offer," said O'Reilly. "Like most enrichment activities, the only kids that are able to take advantage of it are ones with active, awesome families who prioritize those kinds of activities.
