Welcome from our new 4-H Educator, Emily Brown!

Hi, My name is Emily Brown, I am the new 4-H and Youth Development Educator. I attended Indiana State University for both my bachelor’s and master’s degrees. I live in Terre Haute with my husband, son and our 2 cats. Growing up I was a 10 year 4-H member in Illinois, I did an exhibit hall project from almost every category at some point. I also participated in an exchange program with 4-H international and lived in Costa Rica for a month while I was 16, my family then hosted a Costa Rican participant the following year. I have so many great memories of 4-H growing up, and I am looking forward to helping create similar memories for our Vigo County 4-H members!
