Blog #1- It’s Me Again
September 19, 2016

Once again I find myself in a wonderful opportunity with the internship program of Ogallala Commons. Let me tell you about myself (again). My name is Landry David Setliff. I was born the second child to Doug and Tonya Setliff in the small town of Dimmitt, Texas. I have one older sister, who has since been married and had a son. Soon after my third birthday, my family moved from Dimmitt to the town of Kress where I spent the rest of my childhood and teenage years. I always did well in school, and quickly received the label of the “smart kid.” My time in school consisted of helping others with homework assignments and reading every book I could get my hands on. I played many sports, partook in many clubs and societies, but no extracurricular activity was so important to me as 4-H. I joined as an eight year old and enjoyed ten wonderful years learning and growing in this program. I raised animals for stock-shows, partook in leadership training and held leadership positions including Club President and Co-Chairman of the Swisher County 4-H Council. I graduated from Kress High School as Valedictorian of my class in 2013, and was accepted into West Texas A&M University. I quickly joined clubs and societies that were similar to my time in 4-H, including the Attebury Honors Society and Rogers LEAD WT. This will be my second internship through Ogallala Commons, and I look forward to working with the Panhandle Community Services Organization and my work in community outreach.
