Shannon Rowley

WSU Extension 4-H Youth Development Program

 How long have you been at the county office?
Eighteen years total with three years as the 4-H Program Coordinator.

Where did you grow up?
Colville, Washington in Stevens County.

Favorite activities/interests:
I enjoy scrapbooking, reading, sewing, baking, and bike riding.

What was your 4-H experience?
I was involved with the dog project. I loved training and working with my dog. We became a team.  I really liked the sense of accomplishment in completing the project.

What do you enjoy most about working in 4-H?
I really enjoy watching both youth and adult volunteers learn and use new skills. It’s great to watch people who don’t believe they are leaders take charge of an event or project and be the life blood of it.

How have you seen 4-H help youth as they develop and grow?
I’ve had the opportunity to see many shy, new 4-H members grow into talented, confident young people. I believe many of the skills they learn in 4-H have helped them in the careers they now have. The skills I see used most are public speaking, leadership, and working with others.
