That's Rural Banner

Congratulations to Osage County 4-H mom, Keri Harris!  Keri is in the spotlight for the great volunteer work that she's been doing for the community by making masks.  She was interviewed for the Now That's Rural news story by Ron Wilson, director of the Huck Boyd National Institute for Rural Development at Kansas State University.  At the time of the interview, Keri had made over 800 masks, but now she's made over 1,000!  Thanks for all that you do, Keri!

You can read the news story at Now That's Rural in Extension News.
