Greetings! I’m Amy Henschen, the new 4-H agent for the San Luis Valley. I started on September 1st, and am extremely excited to be working to help “Make the Best Better” here in the Valley. I’ve had a chance to meet many of you on fair judging day and in the office the last few weeks and I look forward to meeting more of you in the months to come. I am going to be spending my first few months trying to talk to members, leaders, parents and volunteers to evaluate where we are and where we want to go together. I welcome your thoughts and input on what’s working and where we can grow. Feel free to drop in to the office, send me an e-mail (amy.henschen@colostate.edu) or give me a call (719-852-7381) to share your ideas.
