New ISU Extension VP Visits Region

Just 10 days into the job, Iowa State University Vice President of Extension and Outreach, Jason Henderson, was in Mount Pleasant to listen to the Extension professionals in an effort to gather information for a new strategic plan. Friday afternoon the Henry County Extension office hosted Henderson who asked those gathered to share what ISU Extension is doing that is good and what they see as opportunities and barriers. He said he is excited about making Iowa even stronger thru Extension and Outreach’s mission and programs. Henderson grew up in Northeast Iowa and his wife, Angie, is originally from What Cheer. The family has a Mount Pleasant connection. Angie Henderson is the sister of Jennifer Striegel. KILJ Radio will celebrate Extension Week April 17-21.
