Taylor joins staff of Ford County Extension office


Amy Taylor joined the staff of the K-State Research and Extension Ford County office as the 4-H youth development Extension agent, effective Jan. 4. She worked previously as the K-State Research and Extension director in Trego County, Kan., and as a summer intern in the McPherson County, Kan., Extension office.

Taylor earned a bachelor's degree in agricultural and environmental communications and education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. This past December, she graduated with a master's degree in agricultural education from Oklahoma State University.

Taylor grew up in Cary, Ill., about an hour northwest of Chicago. At the age of 8, she joined 4-H and discovered many of her most favorite things--livestock, cooking, public speaking, leadership, and making friends. It was the summer she spent in McPherson that Taylor discovered her love for wide-open spaces and the golden wheat fields of Kansas.

Now that she is back with K-State Research and Extension, she is excited about all the opportunities which lie ahead in Ford County.

"4-H provides youth with the ability to develop into capable young adults, while sparking a passion for education and leadership," Taylor said.

In addition to traditional community 4-H club programs, 4-H reaches youth through school enrichment, after school programs, and many summer programming opportunities. Taylor points out that "with learning experiences designed for boys and girls of all ages, 4-H has something for everyone."

To find out more information on 4-H or other Extension programs, contact the K-State Research and Extension, Ford County office at 620-227-4542 or visit www.ford.ksu.edu. 4-H is a community of young people learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills.
