Shout Out: Cassidy Lutz and Amanda Clasen

Submitted by Gregg Hadley

This week the Shout Out is from Krista Harding, Southwind Extension District Director; and is sent for Cassidy Lutz, Southwind District Family and Consumer Sciences Extension Agent and Amanda Clasen, Southwind District Community Vitality Extension Agent. Krista writes:

I want to send a Shout Out to Cassidy Lutz and Amanda Clasen for hosting Youth Babysitting Clinics across the Southwind District. The timing of the clinics was perfect – spring break! Students were out of school and at a time when many begin to think about summer employment opportunities.

With the availability of child care a huge concern, these clinics provided an opportunity for youth ages 12-18 to gain the skills and training to equip them to provide a much needed service in our communities.

A mom of one of the participants posted a note on social media about her daughter attending a clinic. A comment on the post read: “This is awesome! Way to go Sydney. I was so happy to see this being offered. We used to have trainings like this when I was younger but they have been few and far between for many years. Kudos to the Extension office for doing such great things and providing these opportunities for your youth.”

Thank you Cassidy and Amanda for providing this training!

Cassidy and Amanda, thanks for all you do for the people of Kansas, our colleagues and K-State Research and Extension.

If you know of a colleague or team of colleagues who deserve recognition for a job well done, why not nominate them for a Shout Out. Simply send their name(s) and the reason for the Shout Out to ksreshoutout@ksu.edu.

Shout Out submissions are published in the order they are received.
