We are proud to welcome new 4-H Youth Educator Courtney Wesner to our team. Courtney started March 1 and has hit the ground running, attending the Career and Tech Education Task Force with Orange County Public Schools, leading stockman’s practice Wednesday night, and judging 4-H youth presentations.
She was born and raised in Chalmers, Indiana, where she grew up on her family’s Simmental and SimAngus™ cow-calf operation. Courtney is a 2013 graduate of Purdue University where she received a Bachelor of Science in Animal Agribusiness. While at Purdue, she was a member of a successful and nationally competitive livestock judging team.
Courtney is no newcomer to youth development programs, both as a participant and a coordinator, and an active member of 4-H, FFA, and the American Junior Simmental Association (AJSA). She joins us most recently off of a position at the American Simmental Association (ASA) where she spent four years assisting with AJSA Youth Activities programs.
We’re still waiting for Courtney’s email address to get set up, but feel free to call or stop by the Extension office to say hello and welcome her to Orange!
