Jena Shaffer will be the 2012 Summer Assistant for Penn State Extension.  Jena will be entering her sophomore year of college at Penn State University in State College, pursuing a major in Agriculture and Extension Education with a minor in Animal Science.

She is the daughter of Rick and Suzette Shaffer, and has two siblings, Anni and Justin.  Her father grew up through the 4-H program, and now her brother and sister are involved in 4-H, as well.  Jena has been involved with 4-H for ten years and participated in the Montana Exchange program.  In her spare time, she enjoys riding horses and being outside.

"I know that I am a better person because of the 4-H program, and I plan to make sure that 4-H will be around for many more years to come," says Jena.

Please welcome Jena when you see her this summer in the office or at the 4-H events.
