Teri Antilley named director of the Montana 4-H Center for Youth Development

BOZEMAN — Montana State University Extension has selected Teri Antilley to be the next director of the Montana 4-H Center for Youth Development.

As director, Antilley will provide leadership and establish strategic direction for the center and for all 4-H programs. She will also serve as the state 4-H program leader.

Montana 4-H is the youth development program of MSU Extension. It reaches more than 17,000 youth each year and is supported by more than 3,000 volunteers.

Antilley has served as interim director since January and previously held the position of agriculture and natural resources specialist with MSU Extension. She was chosen for the director position after a national search.

“We are pleased that someone with Dr. Antilley’s experience and qualifications will be leading the Montana 4-H Center for Youth Development and serving as our state program leader,” said MSU Extension Executive Director Cody Stone. “Montana 4-H programs support positive youth development across our state, and Dr. Antilley’s leadership will be essential to our future.”

Antilley said she was honored to accept the position and to see Montana 4-H grow across the state.

“My life goal is to help others succeed,” Antilley said. “I am committed to service, lifelong learning and positive youth development.”

Antilley said she aims to build a community of support and trust while providing connections, education, resources and skills that empower 4-H members and volunteers.

“I look forward to working across the state and exploring ways to support youth in college and career readiness,” she said.

Antilley was previously an instructor and director of the Texas Tech University Equestrian Center. She was a teacher from 2018 to 2020 and a senior instructor and Extension horse specialist for The Pennsylvania State University from 2016 to 2017. She was an Extension program specialist at Texas A&M University from 2006 to 2016.

Antilley has a doctorate in agricultural leadership, education and communications, with an emphasis on Extension education, from Texas A&M University. She also received bachelor’s and master’s degrees in animal science from Texas A&M.

She succeeds Todd Kesner, who left the position in January.
