Making the Best Better

Hello Everyone,

I am extremely excited to officially introduce myself and be here in Breckinridge County, Kentucky! My name is Anna Denny and I am your Extension Agent for the 4-H Youth Development Education program.

4-H has always been a large part of my life, as I was a ten year 4-H member and continued my involvement as an adult volunteer and coach. I started my career in Cooperative Extension as the summer intern for the Purdue University Extension in Harrison County while attending Murray State University, majoring in Science of Agriculture. I continued my career with Cooperative Extension as a Program Assistant. During that time, I found my passion for positive youth development, creating programs to help shape young people’s futures as it did mine years ago.
