Hello! Welcome to 4-H Youth Development in Hardin County! My name is Marla Stillwell and I am one of your County Extension Agents for 4-H Youth Development. I am a native of LaRue County and grew up on a small farm in Upton, KY. My undergraduate work was completed at Murray State University in May of 2006 with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture degree in Animal Science emphasizing in Food Animal Production. Currently, I attend the University of Kentucky as a part-time graduate student seeking a Master of Science degree in Career & Technical Education. In the summer of 2005, I began my career in Extension through a summer internship with the Calloway County Cooperative Extension Service and upon graduation in 2006, was later offered the position of County Extension Agent for 4-H Youth Development in Hardin County.
