Aimee Elkins hired as Oconto-Marinette 4-H coordinator

OCONTO — The University of Wisconsin Division of Extension has announced Aimee Elkins started August 14 as the 4-H program coordinator for Oconto and Marinette counties. With over 500 youth involved in 4-H in this two-county area, UW-Extension is looking to provide leadership to grow the program and reach even more youth in the future.

The 4-H program coordinator leads and manages a full range of 4-H Youth Development programs including clubs, after school programs, educational experiences and camps. Program coordinators also design and deliver educational programming to address locally identified needs.

Elkins graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point with a degree in psychology.

Most recently she had been serving as a Healthy Families supervisor for Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin.

“Aimee is going to be a great addition to Extension in both Marinette and Oconto Counties,” said Nancy Crevier, area UW-Extension director. “She is looking forward to meeting with area 4-H clubs to meet our youth members and to begin working with our 4-H adult volunteers.”
