Dean's Column (Nov. 2017)

Dear Extension Retirees,

It was a pleasure to see so many of you this summer during our annual retiree luncheons.

In October, I did one of my favorite duties as dean, honoring our employees and friends with the Distinguished Dean’s Awards at the annual Program Conference. It is an honor to recognize the work, dedication and impact of our colleagues and friends.

Please join me in congratulating the award winners! You can learn more about the 2017 award winners on our website (
