Well done – we are proud of you! (4/11/2013)

Applause photoJoin me in a round of applause for seven NDSU Extension Service employees who were or soon will be publicly recognized:

Jon Fry, Blair Johnson and Jerry Ranum, Desktop Support Specialists | Agriculture Communication/ITS

Jon, Blair and Jerry were applauded March 21 as one of three groups nominated for the 2013 NDSU IT Division Team Award.  ITS sponsors the annual award, but nominations originate from faculty and staff who see innovation, collaboration, excellence and teamwork in a team of ITS staff.  Jon, Blair and Jerry were nominated for their ongoing efforts to support the diverse IT needs of NDSU Agriculture across the state. The Commodity Trading Room Team was selected for the award.

Carolee Kaylor, Nutrition Education Assistant, FNP | McHenry and Pierce Counties

Carolee will receive an Individual Staff Recognition Award at an April 12 luncheon hosted by NDSU Human Resources and NDSU Staff Senate. Carolee is being recognized for the extraordinary contributions she makes in her position. She is one of two to be recognized this year in the technical/paraprofessional category.

Brad Brummond, Extension Agent, ANR | Walsh County

The NDSU Division of Equity, Diversity and Global Outreach is recognizing Brad with a Green and Golden Globe Diversity Award for his efforts to provide diversity education to agency partners  in Walsh County as well as his work with migrant school youth on their community garden summer project. The ceremony will take place at 3 p.m. on April 15 in the Great Plains Ballroom. The Division presents awards annually to NDSU’s champions of equity, diversity and global outreach.

Julie Garden-Robinson, Extension Food and Nutrition Specialist | Health, Nutrition and Exercise Sciences

Julie has been selected as the North Central Region’s representative to the Extension Journal, Inc. Board of Directors. As such she and the other members will evaluate and implement policies for the Journal of Extension (JOE). Her first virtual meeting will be in May. As you likely know, JOE is the official refereed journal of the U.S. Cooperative Extension System. It seeks to expand and update the research and knowledge base for Extension professionals and other adult educators to improve their effectiveness.   

Ken Hellevang, Extension Agricultural Engineer | Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering

Ken has been selected as one of13 American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers Fellows for 2013 by the M-131 Fellows Selection Committee. He will be recognized at the ASABE Annual International Meeting scheduled for July 21-24 at Kansas City, Missouri. To be considered for the grade of ASABE Fellow, an individual must demonstrate unusual professional distinction with outstanding qualifications and experience in the field of agricultural engineering. Twenty years of membership in ASABE is also required. Only about two percent of the active members of ASABE have achieved the grade of Fellow.
