Like many people who have chosen a career in agriculture, my decision was shaped largely by my 4-H experiences.  That’s why I whole-heartedly agreed to share my story as part of the campaign, “My 4-H. My Commitment.


The rich experiences I gained through my 11 years as an active 4-H member also made me a life-long supporter of the organization.  I recently finished my third year as a 4-H Foundation Trustee and am happy to remain involved with some of the organization’s marketing and fund-raising efforts including the upcoming My 4-H.  My Commitment. 4-H Gala.

You’re invited to join me for a night in West Des Moines on Feb. 19.  It would be helpful if registrations were made in advance, but you can register at the door.  There are so many great auction items.  Even if you can’t attend in person, you can bid online.
