Note from the New 4-H Educator

Hello everyone and thank you for such a warm welcome to the 4-H program in this new role! It has been a great month so far meeting lots of new people and putting names to faces! Please don’t hesitate to stop and talk with me or send me an email at , I’d love to hear about your role in our existing programs and talk about opportunities to continue to grow Muskingum County 4-H.

My role as Non-Traditional 4-H educator is an exciting opportunity. I will be giving leadership to a few existing programs such as Real Money Real World and CARTEENS but will also be looking to expand our reach to include more workforce development programs as well as STEM programming. Jamie and I are currently working with the Muskingum County Farm Bureau and the Muskingum County Dairy Promoters to create a Scavenger Hunt at the fair. Informational posters will be hanging in most of the barns so make sure you complete the activity to earn your prize. I am currently working on a County Government Day which will be a great opportunity for Muskingum County Youth to get a glimpse at what it is like to work in public service, details will be coming soon!

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and I look forward to seeing everyone at the Muskingum County Fair. Good luck and make some memories!
