I am a Black Hawk County 4-H Alumni who recently graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in Agriculture and Life Sciences Education, Communications.
Black Hawk County 4-H taught me lessons beyond goal-setting and record-keeping, it provided me with lifelong friends and mentors! The memories I have of my 4-H experiences and Fair Week are something to treasure and revisit with a smile. I have immensely enjoyed spending the last two summers serving as Black Hawk County 4-H Fair Intern.
Looking forward, I will be serving Black Hawk County as a 4-H AmeriCorps Member until August of 2017. I am looking forward to continuously growing the program’s reach!
My goal for this blog is to not only advocate for 4-H, but to share the lessons I learn from the youth I will be serving.
Take a look, stay awhile, and enjoy my adventure with me!
