A great big heartfelt thank you

A great big heartfelt thank you


Katelyn Andersen, 4-H extension agent has made a career move this year, recently changing to part-time family and consumer sciences extension agent, as well as part-time Rocky Mountain Laboratory's well-being and workplace environment facilitator in partnership through Montana State University.

As she ends 13 years working for us in Ravalli County 4-H, we wanted to say great big thank you to her for all she has done.

Since 2006, she has been serving as our 4-H extension agent, along with her many other community efforts. It was so neat to see Katelyn grow from a newbie, learning to work with the local youth and 4-H families, then having children of her own, and now her children becoming 4-Hers.

What a journey. She has spent so much time making a difference in so many youth's lives and experiencing all the events and opportunities right along with our 4-H community, young and old,Cloverbuds to Altunni.

Now also knowing her as a friend, neighbor and fellow 4-H mom, we appreciate what she has brought to our program these many years, and how hard she has worked. Her after hours meeting schedule alone was mind boggling!.

How exciting that her path has now led her to be a fair “barn mom" too. Be sure to tell her thank you when you see her, drop in at the office to say hello (she is still there part-time), or drop her a note of your appreciation.

— Jeanette Smith and family, Summerdale 4-H Club
