I’d like to call your attention to a Feb. 7 story in the Battle Creek Enquirer that features Michigan State University Extension educator Sherry Grice. The article does a good job of explaining what exactly it is that Sherry does every day and in so doing gives people an idea of the scope of what our organization does in just one area: 4-H. From managing volunteers to collaborating with other organizations on dealing with issues involving your people to marketing programs, Sherry exemplifies the hard work and dedication that goes into a successful Extension program. She’s just one of the many of you out there helping others to succeed.
Sherry started with Extension in 1979. She’s been a leader particularly in her work with culturally diverse volunteers and received the 2009 Diversity Award from the National Association of Extension 4-H Agents.
