The Atlantic Chamber Ambassadors were hosted by Cass County ISU Extension on Thursday, July 9. The Ambassadors heard from Kate Olsen about the many ongoing programs and how those programs have been modified and developed thought COVID-19 including the Cass County Fair. Kate shared that even with the many changes in the fair programming the numbers of 4H participates is just a little shy of normal which is “very encouraging” said Kate Olson.

The Ambassadors were introduced to Wendy Richter as PROSPER Project Coordinator whose goal is to facilitate interventions specifically aimed at middle school-aged youth and their families, with an emphasis on building youth competencies, improving family functioning, and preventing conduct problems, particularly substance use. Ambassador’s were also introduced to Brigham Hough in her role as the Cass County Wellness.
