County youth coordinator loves new job

Parsons touts the many benefits to all children when it comes to 4-H

Eleni Parsons has a big goal — a utopian one at that — when it comes to Chickasaw County’s 4-H clubs.

“I’d like every kid to be in it,” the new Chickasaw County ISU Extension youth coordinator said, “and I know that’s probably not realistic, but why not dream big, right?”

For Parsons, her new position is a dream job. It allows her to work with kids without having to be in a classroom, it gives her a chance to tout a program that has been a big part of her life since she was 12 years old and it brings her closer to home.
