Many of our Michigan State University Extension employees and partners were recognized this week at Fall Extension Conference for outstanding work and service. These people honor the mission of Extension by helping people improve their lives through an educational process that applies knowledge to critical issues, needs and opportunities. Here’s your chance to congratulate them if you were not able to do so in person. Click on our Key Partner, Association and Meritorious Service award winner recognition pages at http://fec.msue.msu.edu/fec/awards. Go to the comments section and leave a congratulations or thank-you to these worthy recipients. And next year, I promise I’ll summarize their accomplishments in shorter, 30-second statements!
