For 26 years, Angie Abrams has worked tirelessly with 4-H’ers in Chickasaw County. She spends her time in meetings, doing community service projects, getting ready for contests, preparing paper work, and helping out the other agents in the office. Angie is totally committed to her community and its young people.

“Working with the young people of this county everyday gives me hope that I am making a good impact on their lives. That is what I look forward to every day,” Angie says. “There is nothing more rewarding that seeing a young person achieve, knowing that I helped them get there.”

Angie says she has made wonderful friendships with the 4-H families and the Extension colleagues who have become like family to her.

“I chose this career because I can remember being in 4-H growing up. It was so awesome, and I didn’t want to give it up. So, when the opportunity became available, it was an easy decision,” Abrams says.

Angie acknowledges that it is a very demanding job. But the rewards outweigh the hardships.

“One must be flexible, versatile, and, most importantly, a people person who loves working with all young people and adults alike,” Angie says.

She says that flexibility and the ability to multitask, all while making a difference in children’s lives, are some of the important traits required to be successful in this career. Each day brings different joys and responsibilities, so she says that she had to learn to go with the flow of what the 4-H’ers or volunteers needed in any given moment.

Angie loves to spend time with her family and friends. She can usually be found enjoying horse events on the weekends.
