The Poweshiek County Extension Office recently announced that Haley Princehouse has been named the new County Youth Educator. Her first day on the job was Monday, Oct. 4
Haley grew up in Toledo and was involved in both 4-H and FFA while attending South Tama Community Schools. Her project areas included communications, non-livestock, sheep and dairy cows.
“These programs lead me to attend Iowa State University and major in Animal Science,” Haley said. “I graduated from ISU in May 2019. During my summers, I was an intern at the Tama County Extension Office.”
Following 4-H, Haley showed sheep and dairy cows at the Iowa State Fair as well as entered wood working project, horticulture, floriculture and photography.
When asked what led her to apply for the CYE position, Haley said she was working as a veterinarian technician, but wanted to get back to working with youth.
“I really enjoyed working with the animals, but I wanted to get back to a program that allowed me to work with youth who helped shape me so I can help shape others,” she said.
Haley recently married Garrett. The couple has a dog named Paisly Marie. In her spare time, Haley loves to bake, craft, go biking and hang out with her sheep.
“I am excited to get to know everyone and share my knowledge and passion for 4-H with Poweshiek County,” Haley said. “Please stop in and introduce yourselves, I would love to meet you all.”
