A 4-H youth development educator has joined the Johnson County Extension Office.
According to a Johnson County Extension Office press release, Bryce McKenzie began Monday, June 29, in Buffalo, with hopes to maintain and build upon the Johnson County 4-H program.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to work with the youth across Wyoming and Johnson County,” said McKenzie.
McKenzie has a long history with 4-H as a member, a 4-H leader and is head coach of several Johnson County 4-H judging teams.
“We are excited Bryce is joining UW Extension,” Mandy Marney, University of Wyoming Extension associate director said. “His knowledge of Johnson County 4-H coupled with his ability to build connections will allow Bryce to work closely with stakeholders to continue building a strong, successful youth development program.”
McKenzie served as an intern with the Johnson County extension program for three summers. He coordinated and developed educational programs for youths and adults, built relationships with the members and leaders in the 4-H program and with community stakeholders and outside organizations, according to the press release.
“Johnson County was blessed with great leaders and past educators,” McKenzie said. “I hope to provide further educational opportunities, create a positive learning environment for all and grow the 4-H program to my fullest ability.”
McKenzie graduated with a bachelor’s degree in agricultural communications from UW in May 2019.
