Wiese comes from Fremont, Neb. She is excited to be in Harrison County and at the Extension & Outreach Office.

LOGAN — After more than 27 years as the county youth/4-H coordinator at the Harrison County ISU Extension & Outreach Office, Dee Colwell stepped down from her position in December of 2019.

Taking her place, fresh out of college, is Toni Wiese. She started in earlier this month, on January 6.

Dee has created an amazing program, and I just want to build on it, said Wiese about one of her goals as she starts this new journey.

Wiese grew up in Fremont, Neb. and graduated from Fremont High School in May 2016.

Though she was not directly involved in 4-H as a youngster, she did participate in other similar groups and organizations when she got into high school.

Wiese began taking several family and consumer science classes and quickly realized how much she really enjoyed them.

And she also participated in cooking competitions through programs at her high school, such as SkillsUSA, and by being part of the High School's culinary arts team.
