MUSCATINE, Iowa–Quick to try something new, Katrina McCarty enjoyed participating in Clay County Countrymen 4-H as a child. She pleasantly recalls restoring a doll house as a project and the varied experiences it gave her. “That project is something I never would have done had I not been in 4-H,” she said. “I learned so much about woodworking, interior design, and creative arts and enjoyed working with my family. Now, McCarty will use her love of trying new things and of 4-H to help her as she steps up as Muscatine County 4-H Program Coordinator.

McCarty graduated from Iowa State University after double majoring in agricultural and life sciences education, communications option, and seed science. She knows the skills she acquired during her studies will help her in her new work with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Muscatine County. “I know that my background in agriculture will help me to help youth grow in that area and my experience in communications will allow me to serve our 4-H families effectively,” she explained.

As the 4-H Program Coordinator, McCarty will provide youth development opportunities for kids and teens across the county by supporting the area’s many 4-H Clubs, planning programs, and organizing 4-H events at future Muscatine County Fairs. McCarty welcomes taking on all these new challenges: “I decided to accept the position of the Muscatine County 4-H Program Coordinator because I truly have a passion for agriculture and service. I hope to be able to combine these two passions in my work.”
