Each day at work is a learning experience for Kari Smith, office professional at Southwind Extension District’s Iola office.

Part of her job is to help people find answers. If local Extension agents can’t solve the problem, she’ll tap into a statewide network. If the answer can’t be found in Kansas, she’ll look at the federal level. The answer, backed by research, is out there.

And, sometimes, she’s surprised by what she learns.
