Munro Set to Impact 4-H

Earth Partners Coordinator Myla Munro has answered the call to give back to an organization which shaped her life. On Monday, June 25 Munro will begin the next step of her career as the University of Illinois Extension 4-H Youth Development Educator in Champaign and Ford Counties.

While Munro will be leaving the Foundation team, Foundation Executive Director Kirk Builta sees a great fit for Munro in her new career. “If you visit with Myla for even a few minutes, she’s sure to talk about the impact 4-H had on her life. It’s that deep love she has for 4-H, and most importantly 4-H members, that makes Myla a perfect fit for her new position.”

While it’s tough to see Munro transition into a new role, Builta says it is not “goodbye”. “The Foundation collaborates on many programs with the local extension office, and the 4-H program. Events like our ‘Teens as Teachers’ and ‘Ag Discovery’ programs are shared between the two offices. We look forward to continuing these programs with Myla’s help” says Builta.

Munro began her career with the CCFB Foundation in September 2014. Under her leadership the Foundation’s Earth Partners program grew to provide educational lessons and materials to over 20,000 students throughout the 2017-2018 school year.

Munro’s departure means the Foundation will soon begin the search for her replacement. For more information on this opening please visit the Foundation website at
