The Indiana 4-H Foundation has added to its board of directors: Lori Torres (pictured), Gloria Jimenez, Julia Byers and Sean Sharma (pictured).

Torres serves as inspector general of the State of Indiana. She has previously been involved in Girls, Inc., various other government related commissions, and church related committees. Torres was a 4-H member in Johnson County.

Jimenez is director of fund development and community engagement at the Indiana Latino Institute.

Byers is a township trustee for Wabash Township in Tippecanoe County.

Sharma is a physician at St. Vincent Williamsport Hospital. He received his undergraduate degree from Wabash College, went to Medical School at Indiana University, and completed his Residency at Duke University before returning to his hometown to practice. As a 4-H alumnus, Sharma strives to guide the 4-H program and help youth engage in experiences that that will provide them with skills to be used throughout their entire life.

The Indiana 4-H Foundation is governed by members of the board of directors who represent different industries and areas of the state. Board membership is voluntary and each potential board member is screened by the current board before commencing a term of service. Although our Board members lead very different lives, they all share a passion for Indiana 4-H. Their love for the Indiana 4-H program guides them to make decisions that are in its best interest and the best interest of current and future generations of Indiana 4-H members.
