Sue Quamme has joined the North Dakota State University Extension Service’s Center for 4-H Youth Development as an Extension specialist.

She leads 4-H youth leadership and civic engagement educational programming efforts. She also is the lead adviser for the North Dakota 4-H Ambassador program.

“Her 14-plus years of experience as an educator of adults, adolescents and children will serve as a good foundation for her work in this position,” says Brad Cogdill, chair of the Center for 4-H Youth Development.

Quamme holds a bachelor’s degree in home economics education and a master’s degree in counseling.

She is not new to NDSU Extension or North Dakota 4-H. Most recently, she was a parent educator in the Extension office in Cass County, where she served southeastern North Dakota.

While working on her master’s, she worked in the Center for 4-H Youth Development, assisting with programs such as Operation: Military Kids, North Dakota Governor’s School and Parents LEAD (Listen, Educate, Ask, Discuss). She also contributed to the creation of several youth development-related educational resources.

After obtaining her counseling degree, she served as a school counselor at Oak Grove Elementary School in Fargo from 2010 to 2014. Prior to that, she was a family and consumer science teacher in Breckenridge, Minn., from 2004 to 2009, and has held other part-time roles in her field.
