In this episode, we talk with Jodi Drake, who serves as the Family and Consumer Science agent and the 4-H Youth Development agent in Pratt County. Earlier this year, she took some time from her extremely busy schedule to tell us about her work with Pratt County’s active 4-H program, coordinating a range of programs with schools, promoting health for all age groups and, at the time of this recording, serving as the county ag agent as well. In just the last week before the release of this episode, Pratt County hired a new ag agent, Vicki Simonsen.
