MU Extension Connections
UM System President Tim Wolfe joined MU Extension officials and community leaders at a forum in Marshall on February 14 that focused on how extension benefits Missouri communities, and how it can even better connect with citizens in the future. The event was the first of a statewide “Extension Connections” initiative, occurring in what is the 100th anniversary year of the establishment of MU Extension, whose aim is to bring similar town hall forums to counties across the state over the next year.
“For 100 years, MU Extension has been an integral part of communities across Missouri,” Wolfe said. “Serving as a one-stop source for practical education on almost any topic, Extension excels at connecting university resources and research with residents in communities in every corner of Missouri. I was pleased to take part in today’s first Extension Connections forum in Marshall, to visit with community leaders about how Extension is an asset to their community and how it can even better serve Marshall and Saline County in the future.”
The event at the Martin Community Center included local community leaders, extension faculty and staff from Saline County, additional extension leadership from the State Extension Council, and State Representatives Dave Muntzel and Dean Dohrman.
