Congratulations to Crystal Bashford, Morton County FCS/YD Agent; Andrea Burns, Ford County ANR Agent; Rachael Clews, SW FCS Specialist; and Chuckie Hessong, SE SNAP-Ed Specialist; for their selection as 2023 North Central Extension Leadership Development participants.
The mission of NELD is to build leaders in Cooperative Extension at all levels and provide them with the vision, courage and tools to lead in a changing world. NELD 2023, led this year by the University of Missouri Extension, will use a hybrid approach of delivery, giving participants a rich high tech/high touch experience. It will include three virtual workshops and three in-person sessions for experiential learning.
Since the program started in 1992, 81 K-State Research and Extension faculty have participated in NELD with 35 currently serving as extension professionals.
