Welcome Cindy Nelson


Cindy Nelson is the new FCS/4-H Beaver County Extension agent. She grew up in Beaver on a farm and was involved in numerous 4-H activities for many years and enjoyed showing steers. She attended BYU where she earned a bachelor's degree in physical education with a minor in psychology. She met her husband there and they have five children, two sons-in-law, one grandson, and two granddaughters on the way in January.


Cindy and her husband moved back to Beaver shortly after being married so they could live close to family. She taught high school PE/health for four years, worked for Adult Probation and Parole, and for the past 10 years, has been employed by SUU as an educational talent search advisor. As an ETS advisor, she worked with 7th to 12th grade students to help them be academically successful and to prepare them to enter and graduate from college. 


In her spare time, she worked as an EMT with Beaver Ambulance for 12 years and also served on the volunteer 4-H council. Her family likes to be together and spends time at athletic events. She and her husband love riding 4-wheelers and enjoying the outdoors. A few years ago, she obtained a master's degree in education from SUU with an administrative endorsement. 


Cindy is excited to be with the Extension program and continue her time educating the people in Beaver County.
