Colorado AHEC Program Office Welcomes Matt Hess
Matt Hess joins the Program office as Grant Development and Marketing Coordinator.
Matt grew up in Boulder, Colorado. He attended Baylor University in Waco, Texas where he received a Bachelor of Science in Education and History. After graduating, he remained in Waco and taught at a school for troubled youth. As a teacher, he saw the difference that working with animals and gardens made on his students. He began volunteering at World Hunger Relief, Inc. (WHRI) partially with the intention of de-veloping more skills in agriculture and community development. Matt joined WHRI as the Education Director in 2006. Six years later, he transitioned to the role of Executive Director.
