Zemler Hired as 4-H Activities Specialist

LAS CRUCES - Amy Zemler began work as 4-H activities specialist for New Mexico State University's Cooperative Extension Service in March.

Based at the State 4-H Office on the NMSU campus, Zemler will help lead statewide activities like Senior Leadership Retreat, Teen Getaway and the State 4-H Conference. In addition, she will assist with events such as district contests and 4-H tours at the New Mexico State Fair.

"It's a lot of fun organizing conferences and getting to be behind the scenes," said Zemler, who had worked as a program assistant in the Dona Ana County Extension office since May 2001. "We want to have activities that will keep kids pumped about 4-H."

Zemler earned a bachelor's degree in agricultural and extension education from NMSU in 2001. She served as an ambassador for the College of Agriculture and Home Economics, a representative on the Agriculture and Home Economics Council and a member of the Agricultural and Extension Education Club.

She has been active in Collegiate 4-H and the World Association of Agricultural Councils. She participated in 4-H as a junior member. Away from work, Zemler's interests include camping, dancing and traveling.
