Elmo resident Dani Jo Thatcher oversees the youth coalition that is focused on bringing awareness and attention to the opioid crisis plaguing Carbon and Emery counties.
Thatcher was personally contacted by the National 4-H team to share her story with NBC Learn, as well as the entire nation, on the positive impact that she is having in her community through the coalition and its ongoing efforts. A team from the NBC Learn and the National 4-H made a visit to Emery County on Thursday to meet with Thatcher.
The Thatcher farm was visited and Thatcher was filmed with her goats and moving wheel lines. The Emery County Teen Council also hosted its regularly-scheduled meeting during the filming with Thatcher leading the way.
