Monica Lobenstein, the 4-H youth development agent for Jackson County UW-Extension, is taking a 50 percent curriculum and instructional design specialist position with the state.

In her new part-time role, Lobenstein will be helping build curriculum for the state regarding 4-H cloverbud resources, youth food security and Native American foods and nutrition, with a primary focus on delivering the curriculum digitally.

“It really enhances my skillset and it in-turn would help me do an even better job here in Jackson County,” Lobenstein said.

This part-time role will be through November 15, which will require a little shuffling and hiring at the Jackson County UW-Extension office until Lobenstein returns full-time.

Stepping in for Lobenstein as a 50 percent 4-H program advisor will be Alex Galston, who is currently serving as the outreach education coordinator for Jackson County.
