The occasion of the Extension Centennial seems appropriate for a reminder that we need to recognize those volunteers and decision makers who partner with us to ensure our success in fulfilling our mission. Associate director Steve Lovejoy has moved the nomination process earlier to ensure that the people we honor at our Fall Extension Conference (2014 FEC) have time to plan to attend the ceremony at Michigan State University.
All MSU Extension staff and faculty members are encouraged to think of partners who have helped them succeed in carrying out their Extension work and to nominate them for a Key Partner or a Friend of Extension Award. We also honor colleagues for their outstanding service to MSU Extension and to the people of Michigan.
In order to simplify the process for nominators, we have created a folder on SharePoint titled “Awards and Recognitions.” There you will find a short description of the various awards, previous award winners and nomination forms for both staff awards and for Key Partners. Find those files here: https://share.anr.msu.edu/MSUE/Awards/default.aspx
Please take a few minutes to nominate your colleagues and partners for their outstanding work in furthering the mission of MSU Extension and assisting the individuals, families, businesses and governmental units in achieving their objectives. The deadline for submitting nominations is May 30.
