Alumni Spotlight: Michelle Myers

The roots of a small business can be traced back to 4-H sparking a passion for creating. Michelle Myers was a member of the Bear Grove Blazers in Atlantic, Iowa. With too many favorite 4-H memories to count, Myers says the county fair was always the best week of the year growing up. And all the long hours she spent in the barn with her calves.  Myers was involved in a variety of projects through 4-H. She participated in sewing, baking, refinishing furniture, photography and of course livestock, showing cattle, pigs and sheep. “4-H most definitely sparked my passion for creating and loving agriculture through the projects I took to fair and worked on through the year!” said Myers. Myers’ experience in 4-H also gave her life skills. Having a conversation with a judge and “selling” them on a project or getting up in front of her 4-H group to give an educational presentation. Those are skills Myers still utilizes in her everyday life and career. Currently Myers lives in Atla
