The University of Maryland Extension has welcomed Jamie Kenton as the new 4-H youth development educator in Washington County. 

Kenton holds a master’s degree in education from Towson University, and has more than 20 years of experience working with youth in a variety of settings.

Kenton began her new position as the 4-H youth development educator on Jan. 9.

The 4-H movement supports young people from elementary school through high school with programs designed to shape future leaders and innovators. 

Kenton encourages parents and youth to get involved with 4-H.

“Whether you live in a city, suburb or rural area, there is something for all youth,” she said. 

“4-H’ers engage in hands-on learning activities in the areas of science, citizenship and healthy living. With a new year comes the chance for new experiences, new adventures and new opportunities.”
To find out how you and/or your child can benefit from the program, attend the Meet and Greet the 4-H Educator event Friday, Feb. 17, from 5 to 8 p.m. at University of Maryland Extension, 7303 Sharpsburg Pike, Boonsboro.
