Thank You, Dr. Jardine!
On behalf of Kansas State Research and Extension, I would like to thank Dr. Doug Jardine for his tenure as Acting Assistant Director for Agriculture, Natural Resources and Community Development. His experience and contributions to the Extension Administration team were invaluable. By prior arrangement, his tenure in this position ended December 31, to enable him to focus on his winter and spring Extension specialist programming duties.
After much consideration and due to the budget situation, we will be leaving the position of Assistant Director for Agriculture, Natural Resources and Community Development open for the foreseeable future. Should you have questions or concerns regarding agriculture, natural resources, and or community vitality programming issues, please contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org or 785-532-5820. A new plan for how we will provide coverage for the responsibilities of this position will be announced at the 2018 Partnership Meetings, January 23, 25, 30, and 31, and via the January 30 Tuesday Letter.
