Welcome again to Dr. Kirk Bloir, our state 4-H leader as of Nov. 1. Kirk brings a wealth of experience to this position, and I’m grateful he has agreed to lead our exemplary 4-H youth development program.
I know Kirk and many of our 4-H professionals had a terrific time at the recent NAE4-HA national conference. You represented Ohio well, and we look forward to seeing how you all will implement many of the things you learned during your week connecting with your Ohio and national peers.
I hope to be able to make an announcement in the next week or so about the next director of the Learning and Organizational Development unit. We interviewed several excellent candidates; and we look forward to the new director and the LOD team continuing the great work they have started in the last year and a half.
