Be fearlessly committed to growing more true leaders

After 15 years leading Minnesota 4-H, I am ready to return home to Virginia and pass leadership on to the next keeper of the clover.

Jennifer Skuza will serve as interim leader of Minnesota 4-H beginning Aug. 1. She has been with University of Minnesota Extension since 1993 in youth development roles including program coordinator, educator and assistant dean. Jennifer is passionate and intentional. I know our program will thrive under her leadership.

Thank you for welcoming me into the Minnesota 4-H family. You have a deep commitment to high-quality experiences for young people. I am grateful to have served alongside you.

4-H has always been about growing youth into leaders –confident and knowledgeable people who act with integrity, collaboration and pride. As our program continues to adapt to the needs of today’s youth, I challenge you to remain focused on our heart, our goal. Be fearlessly committed to growing more true leaders in Minnesota.
