LANCASTER - Garrard County 4-H agent Stephanie Blevins is proud that she no longer cries when reminiscing about her last seven years on the job, and her last day in the office July 29.
While Blevins says has greatly enjoyed the work and will miss the children, she has accepted a new position with the Club Delivery System in the state 4-H office in Lexington, and has since left the Garrard County Extension office.
"It was a good career opportunity. I enjoyed working with the kids... but this presented new challenges," Blevins explained. "It was a tough decision."
According to co-workers, Blevins' absence will leave a void difficult to fill. She "certainly did a really great job at her position as 4-H agent here, and we're going to miss her," county ag agent Mike Carter said.
