Mary Ellen is a 15-year leader and Organizational Leader of Tailtwisters 4-H. Mary Ellen got her start in 4-H as a member herself and then served in college on the Fair Board. She then took a little time off and got her son Cody involved in 4-H when he was 8 and became an organizational leader, which she has loved. She stays motivated as a leader by the love that comes from all the kids, parents and guardians when she walks into any 4-H event. She truly believes that 4-H makes the best better.
Outside of 4-H Mary Ellen is involved in numerous organizations including Hope at the Miracle House, Booster Club, and Ft. Lupton Chamber of Commerce. She also enjoys swimming, reading, crafting, and planning events. The most important aspect of being a leader to her is being a part of the kids’ lives and watching them learn and grow.
