ND 4-H Foundation elects officers

Becky Peterson of Mandan begins her term as chair of the North Dakota 4-H Foundation.

The North Dakota 4-H Foundation recently elected new officers. They are:

  • Becky Peterson, chair, Mandan
  • Jennifer Hauge, vice chair of ends development and evaluation, Leith
  • Alana Sears, vice chair of policy monitoring, Wheatland
  • Vicki Monsen, vice chair of board fundraising and community outreach, Watford City

The North Dakota 4-H Foundation raises funds to support 4-H youth programs across the state. An additional 15 4-H supporters and North Dakota State University Extension staff serve on the foundation’s board.

“One of my favorite ads is the National 4-H ad, ‘You’re going to need us,’ which expresses that 4-H is growing the next generation of leaders,” said Peterson, who is marketing and services director with Farm Credit Services of Mandan. “Nothing prepares our youth for careers and leadership like 4-H does, but they can’t do it alone. They need the North Dakota 4-H Foundation to help fund the programs that develop those leadership and communication skills. My passion for this organization is driven by the proven leadership results and our team of board members who help reach our foundation goals.”
