SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Greene County Extension Council held its 2014 annual meeting Monday, Feb. 24, inside the Springfield-Greene County Botanical Center.
Three individuals were recognized for their long-term commitment to MU Extension programs by being named to the “Leader’s Honor Roll.”
One of those recipients was Mark Green, a District Conservationist with USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Springfield.
Greene received his bachelor in agronomy from Missouri State University in 1983 and has worked for the Soil and Water Conservation District and NRCS since 1981. He has been serving in Greene and Webster Counties in SW Missouri since 1994.
“Mark is always a calm and thoughtful partner in programs and projects. He is an educator and a great supporter of Extension and our programs. He is vital to the success of our Soils and Crops program. He also works with extension specialists in this region on a number of events like the Regional Intensive Grazing Schools, Spring Forage Conference and hay schools,” said David Burton, county program director for Greene County Extension. “For this reason, the Greene County Extension Council recognized Mark Green with our Leader’s Honor Roll Award.”
Members of the Greene County Extension nutrition program were the evening’s guest speakers. They provided an overview of what MU Extension is doing to provide nutrition education for children and families in Greene County. In addition, oath of office for the newly elected Extension Council members was administered by Greene County Clerk Richard Struckoff.
