I am Extension 2024

I am Extension

Extension plays a crucial role in our communities around Ohio. We represent Extension and the College of Food, Agriculture, and Environmental Sciences in our roles. This year, we want to highlight, celebrate, and showcase those individuals who exemplify and embody the mission, vision, and values of the university, the college, and especially the Extension Keys: Trust, Inclusion, Care, Adaptability, and Efficiency. We want to share their stories below through a series called I am Extension.
