GrowNextGen teacher leader

Leslie Cooksey

Extension Educator at 4-H Youth Development

Why should people connect with you through GrowNextGen?

I bring a different background to GrowNextGen in that I work with both adults and children in my position as a 4-H extension agent. My hope is to connect industry experts to my clientele and help serve as a network resource person on 4-H related curriculum, experiences, projects and more. Although I’m not in a formal teaching position, it’s important in my role to connect the public with agricultural commodities, educational organizations and OSU extension. Experiences with those types of organizations will help tie real-world situations and problems to applicable classroom learning experiences.
