Savannah started her career with Stevens County 4-h, as the Extension Educator back in 2021.

Andy has been a proud member of the Farm Bureau for over 35 years. He has been serving as the county Farm Bureau President, rancher chairman, board member, membership chairman, young farmer and is now the vice president.

The entire family has been actively involved in many different levels of 4-H, FFA and the Farm Bureau.
