West Virginia's first Corn Club was organized at Pickaway School on idea of county superintendent C.A. Keadle, with support from WVU Agricultural Dean T.C. Atkenson. WVU Extension Dept. provided 71 schoolchildren with tested seed in 1908 and 46 entered crop in corn show at courthouse in Union in November. Corn Clubs, later known as Agricultural Clubs, paved the way for today's 4-H Clubs.
