Allow Me to Introduce Myself

Submitted by Kelsey Nordyke

Kelsey and family

Greetings, Kansas 4-H family!  I'm excited to have just completed my first month in my new role and wanted to take a minute to introduce myself.  I am Kelsey Nordyke, your Kansas 4-H Ag Sciences Specialist and the Regional 4-H Specialist serving the Southeast region.  Having spent the last 14 years as the 4-H Youth Development Agent and 2 years as Ag/Natural Resources Agent in Cowley County, I'm no stranger to 4-H and the Southeast Area.  I live in Winfield with my two kids, Kennedy and Koy.  As a family, we enjoy being involved in our 4-H club, as well as the Meat Goat, Beef and Horse projects.  As 8th and 4th graders, my kids keep me busy running with cheerleading, basketball, football and wrestling.  Personally, I enjoy working out and running as well as volunteering as our local 4-H livestock and horse judging team coach.

In my role as 4-H youth development specialist, I look forward to working alongside our 4-H staff in the local units to provide support.  I'm also excited about the opportunity to work with the agricultural sciences projects for our 4-H'ers across the state.  We've already got some exciting learning and leadership opportunities being planned and I look forward to sharing them with you as they develop.

I work remotely, and have an office in Parsons at the Southeast Research and Extension Center.  I can be reached via email at klnordyke@ksu.edu or cell phone 620-222-1311. I'm excited to be working with you soon!
