Placitas youth named 4-H State Ambassador
Anne Meyer-Miner of Placitas was inducted as a 4-H State Ambassador during the annual 4-H Senior Leadership Retreat in Albuquerque on Jan. 17.
The daughter of Mary Meyer is a junior at Early College Academy in Albuquerque. She has been a 4-H member for eight years and has participated in projects ranging from archery, baking and photography, welding, dog obedience and sewing. She is the president of the Starbucks 4-H Club and has helped organize the spring horse show.
Outside of 4-H she participates in the math club, astronomy club and yearbook staff, and enjoys biking, caving and kayaking.
She joins Laynee Kuenstler of Caballo, Jalayna Roberts of Portales and Charles Woodall of Las Cruces as the 2009 state ambassadors.
"I wanted to be an ambassador to take on a larger leadership role," Meyer-Miner said.
The senior 4-H members will share the ambassador responsibilities, which include assisting with the parade and tours at the New Mexico State Fair, planning and conducting Senior Leadership Retreat in conjunction with the 4-H State Diplomats, and assisting with the State 4-H Conference and providing training and support to county ambassadors. They will also represent New Mexico at the National 4-H Conference in Washington, D.C., and assist the New Mexico 4-H Youth Foundation in donor contacts and public relations.
