Kim Ragland is the new Extension Agent for 4-H and Youth Development in Boyle County.
It is Ragland's job to enroll young people in the program, find and train volunteers to assist the young people, support the Boyle County 4-H clubs and activities, represent the program at state and national levels, and develop more educational opportunities for the youth.
"There is no end to the variety of projects available to young people through 4-H, and as a result, no end to the opportunities 4-H provides to help young people become everything they are capable of becoming," explained Ragland, who started Nov. 1.
After receiving her Ph.D. in ruminant nutrition from the University of Georgia, Ragland worked as State Extension Specialist in Distance Learning at the University of Kentucky. She took the position in Danville to be closer to her family.
