Marnie Ward is the new UF/IFAS Citrus County 4-H Extension Service agent. The long-time Citrus County resident has a background in education and has been involved as a 4-H volunteer.
She holds a doctorate degree and has been an adjunct science instructor at the College of Central Florida.
She took the position in September, as the Extension Service was down to a skeleton staff and Citrus County 4-H was entering its busiest time of the year. The program serves young people ages 5 through 18.
