4-H agent receives award

Liberty County 4-H agent Kasey Bozeman received the 4-H Military Partnerships Award from the National Association of Extension 4-H Agents for her work with military youth in Georgia.

The award is a collaborative effort of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, 4-H National Headquarters, U.S. Army Child, Youth and School Services, the U.S. Air Force Child and Youth Programs, and Navy Child and Youth Programs.

Each year, the partnership honors an individual or team with the award. Bozeman was recognized for her work with Fort Stewart’s Child, Youth and School Services. She planned and implemented 4-H activities that reached more than 950 military youth, both on and off installations, over the past two years.

Bozeman manages all aspects of the Liberty County 4-H program by providing educational programs for youth in monthly 4-H club meetings (in-school, after school and at Fort Stewart), coordinating local activities and preparing youth for project and judging events.

In addition to her 4-H duties in Liberty County, Bozeman serves as the Extension coordinator for Long County.
