As we draw near to the end of a decade, I cant help but reflect on the changes within our local Extension services .
In 2010, the Southwind District was formed between Neosho and Allen counties. Elected officials, board members, agents and countless community members had the foresight to see this would be a viable option for meeting the challenges of changing rural communities. Only a year later, Bourbon County was added.
Since then, our programming presence has grown and agents have embraced specialization.
