SDSU Extension announces the appointment of 10 new 4-H program advisors

BROOKINGS, SD – SDSU Extension announces the appointment of 10 new 4-H Youth Program Advisors who will serve youth in 17 South Dakota counties.

“SDSU Extension will ultimately hire 32 4-H Youth Program Advisors, who will be located across the state. These positions will support the county-specific needs of the 4-H program,” said Karla Trautman, Associate Director of SDSU Extension.

SDSU Extension and South Dakota counties share the cost of 4-H Youth Program Advisors.

All South Dakota counties participated in this program. When SDSU Extension negotiated new 4-H service agreements with all South Dakota counties in 2011, they were asked to consider the level of support they would choose to invest. Some counties, with higher youth populations, chose to have one advisor serve only their county. Other counties formed partnerships with neighboring counties and will share the 4-H Youth Program Advisor.

The new 4-H Youth Program Advisors include; Sonia Mack, Brookings County, beginning Nov. 22; Kim McGraw, Clark/Spink Counties, Nov. 22; Jennifer Ringkob, Day/Marshall Counties, Dec. 22; John Keimig, Deuel/Grant Counties, beginning Nov. 22; Megan Peterson, Gregory/Tripp Counties, beginning Nov. 22; Aren Fields, Hamlin/Kingsbury Counties, beginning Dec. 1; Hutchinson/Turner Counties, Deanna Gall, beginning Nov. 22; Amanda Stade, Lake/Moody Counties, beginning Nov. 28; Amber Lounsbery, Lincoln County, beginning Nov. 22; and Maria Feldhaus, Miner County, beginning Nov. 22.
