Shani is a 15-year leader through Severance 4-H. She was a 10 year member herself and knew when her daughter turned 8 that becoming involved at a higher level was her calling. She served as an Organizational Leader and in her more recent years a Dairy Cattle Resource Leader and member of the Dairy Council. Shani has stayed motivated to volunteer because of her love for kids and cows – she loves to connect with the youth about something she is passionate about. Outside of 4-H, Shani is involved with the Weld County Dairyman, Windsor-Severance FFA, dancing and traveling. To her the most important part of being a leader is knowing that she was a small part of a child’s life and the hope that she has made a difference.
