Gerken Announces Retirement from OSU Extension

Dear Friends,

It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing my retirement effective September 27, 2019.

I have had the pleasure of a career for 33+ years at Ohio State University Extension, in Economic Development, Community Development, and the last few years in the 4-H Program.  The 4-H program would not be as successful as it is without the volunteers that so graciously give their time and all who participate and give their endless support to the program to help grow our children to be successful adults.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the support that I have been given from all of you, including 4-H’ers.  You have all helped me to grow both personally and professionally.

The years here have given me many great memories to treasure, and it is the people that have made the years here so enjoyable. I cannot express just how much I will miss everyone.

As I move on to the next chapter in my life, I wish only the best for everyone and the continued success of the Washington County 4-H Program.

Jill Gerken
