“I am grateful to be part of this wonderful team of 4-H professionals across NY State and look forward to supporting our dynamic community in this new way. I am excited to continue working together to help all youth thrive.”

Please join me in congratulating Alexa on this appointment and in providing support to her and the NYS 4-H program during this time of transition.
