4-H educator starts in Big Horn County
A 4-H youth educator will join the Big Horn County office of the University of Wyoming Cooperative Extension Service.
Geneva "Jenny" Good will begin May 13 in Greybull. Good will graduate this May from the University of Wyoming with a bachelor's degree in agricultural communications with an emphasis in animal science.
"Jenny brings a strong 4-H background as a member with experience with livestock projects, cake decorating, dog projects and shooting sports," said Susan James, federal relations and staff development coordinator with UW CES. "During her college career, she held a number of leadership roles, including 2009 president of the UW Collegiate 4-H Club."
Good and her family lived on a ranch near Burns for five years. The family moved to Jefferson, Colo., when she was a sophomore, and she graduated from South Park High School in Fairplay, Colo., in 2003. Her family now lives in Custer, S.D.
"I applied for the position because, after becoming a part of 4-H in a small town in Colorado, I fell in love with what it meant to be in 4-H and how much it helped me to grow as a person," said Good. "I knew I would like to give other kids a chance to grow as much as I did in the 4-H program."
She participated in market beef projects and in leadership roles. "I was one of those on-the-run kids with three sports, a job, as well as helping (stepfather) Rick on the ranch, so I know how busy 4-Hers can be," she said.
Good also brings experience serving as the program director for the Western Dakota 4-H Camp in Custer.
