Starke County Native Returns Home for Purdue Extension Position

Purdue Extension LogoPurdue Extension has a new 4-H youth development educator for Starke County.

Julia Miller started in the job October 1, but she says she’s already familiar with the program, “I did grow up in Starke County. I’m from here originally, so I am back to work with the program that I was a 10-year 4-H member of.”

For the past three years, she’d held the same position for Huntington County. She says she’s happy to be back where she grew up, “I’m just meeting people in the community, and I’m excited to be here to work with the volunteers and the 4-H families.”

One of the first things she has going on is enrollment for the next 4-H year. Families can sign up at Enrollment continues through January 15.
