Three More Counties in Extension Districts

Submitted by Jim Lindquist

Congratulations to Wilson County joining the Wildcat Extension District and to Barton and Ellis Counties in forming the Cottonwood Extension District #17. These changes, effective July 1, 2017, result in 48 counties now organized into Extension Districts. The process to create these new opportunities for greater effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability is a long one and requires the active involvement of agents, Extension Boards, County Commissioners and Extension stakeholders. Many other counties across the state are currently engaged in active discussions to create new districts or join existing districts.

Contact your Regional Extension Director for more information and support for this discussion. Board members can review Extension District materials at http://www.ksre.k-state.edu/boardleadership/extension-districts/. Thank you to all involved in creating this new future for K-State Research and Extension programming for the residents of Barton, Ellis and Wilson Counties.
