As of Monday, October 1, 2018, OSU Extension Seneca County is excited to have on board our new Agriculture and Natural Resources Educator, Hallie Williams. This position has been vacant for some time and we are pleased she is on board. Please see a short bio of Hallie below:
Hallie Williams was born and raised in Wood County, Ohio where she actively participated in 4-H and FFA raising livestock and participating in junior leadership activites. Her 4-H livestock judging experiences allowed for college scholarship opportunities in Kansas and on to Oklahoma State University where she completed her Bachelor's degree in Animal Science in 2012 and met her husband Kyle.
Hallie has worked in various sectors of agriculture ranging from local foods and community development to livestock production and nutrition education. The Williamses chose to move back to Northwest Ohio in 2017 to assist with Hallie's family farm and to purchase an 80-acre farm of their own, as they wish to raise a family with the same agricultural values and work ethic that was instilled in them as children. She completed her Master's degree in Agricultural Education with a Certificate in Non-Profit Management in 2017. As a fifth generation Ohio family farmer, Hallie deeply cares about agriculture and its importance to communities and hopes to provide resources and support to a thriving Seneca County.
Welcome to Seneca County Hallie!
