4-H veteran Holly Luerssen named UW-Extension coordinator in county
space
Longtime 4-H leader Holly Luerssen has been selected as the new half-time 4-H program coordinator by the University of Wisconsin-Extension, Langlade County.

I’m excited to see us move ahead and to see what will come of this, Joe Novak, chairman of the Langlade County Agricultural & Extension Committee, said.

With 262 4-H youth and 85 4-H adult volunteers, the Langlade County 4-H program continues to flourish. Luerssen will help maintain and develop 4-H programs in areas as diverse as arts and crafts, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), to animal sciences and livestock.

She will focus on growing 4-H’s membership base, including the retention and growth of teen membership, assisting the 12 4-H clubs throughout the county, and recruiting and coordinating volunteers.

We are very much looking forward to working with Holly, Art Lersch, area Extension director for Langlade, Lincoln, Price and Taylor counties, said. She brings a wealth of experience and a fresh approach to the 4-H Program Coordinator that I am certain will be of great benefit to youth, volunteers, and 4-H stakeholders.

Luerssen comes to the Extension office with a wealth of knowledge about the Langlade 4-H program. For many years, she has worked in the county with 4-H youth and volunteers as a volunteer leader with for example rabbit and archery projects. She also served as Langlade Extension’s interim 4-H youth development educator for several months in 2011-12.

In addition to being highly familiar with Langlade 4-H, Luerssen brings to the coordinator position 24 years of working with youth as a teacher. She has also been a Wisconsin County Fair judge and Antigo school district summer youth drama director.

Luerssen joins a group of professionals in the office including agriculture educators Dan Marzu and Steve Zimmerman, Agriculture Research Station, Family Living Educator Carrie Kubacki, and FoodWise Nutrition Educator Beth Meyer and FoodWise Coordinator Tammy Hansen.

Karalee Brock and Jenny Carson provide support to all Langlade Extension programming, including 4-H initiatives.
