PUEBLO — A CSU extension office employee in Pueblo County is celebrating a milestone.

Carol Kuhns is nearing 50 years of being part of the office, serving 15 of those years with the 4H.

Kuhns said she is going to retire later this year, but folks celebrated her accomplishment Wednesday with a parade in her honor at the Pueblo County Fair. She said what has kept her going all these years is helping the kids.

"They mean everything," Kuhns said. "Just watching them grow up, watching them become successful, watching them go through the whole gambit of 4H."

Even though Kuhns is retiring, she is still going to volunteer in 4H so she can help more kids.
