A Note from Miss Caitlyn
Dear Lincoln, Logan & McPherson County 4-H Families,
Hello! My name is Caitlyn Jacobson. I am the new 4-H youth development Extension Educator as of June 1st. I am from North Platte, and my family comes from a strong agricultural background. I was a 4-H member throughout all my years of eligibility. I have been married to my husband, Patrick for 4 years. Before coming to UNL extension, I was a teacher for 7 years. I hope to bring many educational experiences to our area and I look forward to serving our counties and growing our 4-H program. I am eager to meet all of you, please say hi if you see me out and about. The deadline for enrollment and affidavits is June 15th.
Feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns,
