Karina Kpahn, of Coon Rapids, has been selected to represent 4-H in Minnesota and work with thousands of people from across the state.
Karina, whose parents are Sam Kpahn and Jennifer Brown, is one of 31 youth selected to serve as Minnesota 4-H state ambassadors.
State ambassadors are the youth leaders and spokespeople for Minnesota 4-H. Being selected as a state ambassador is one of the highest honors a 4-H member can achieve. Karina is entering her senior year at Coon Rapids High School, where she is involved in 4-H Youth Teaching Youth, HOSA, and Educators Rising.
“My goals are to get more involved in 4-H and learn more about project areas I’m not exposed to at Coon Rapid,” Karina said in a statement.
Throughout this year, the 4-H state ambassador team will dedicate many hours to organizing, planning and facilitating 4-H activities and events throughout the state. This includes supporting 2020 Minnesota 4-H state showcases, coordinating and facilitating statewide leadership events and sharing their 4-H story with the general public at businesses, industry associations, schools and community groups.
