Sibley, Iowa — There will soon be a new face at the Osceola County office of Iowa State University Extension and Outreach.
Ashley Peters has been selected as the new County Youth Coordinator. She starts on Monday, May 23.
Peters follows Mike Compton whose final day will be May 24. Compton served as the Osceola County Youth Coordinator for five years.
Cheryl Heronemus, Regional Extension Education Director says that Compton did a great deal for Osceola County’s youth programs throughout the past few years and he will definitely be missed.
