Nutrition Education Returns to County - Hiring Nutrition Program Associate
After a school year without the "Nutrition Lady," Harrison County schools were happy to hear that University of Missouri Extension is hiring a Nutrition Program Associate (NPA) for the county.
The position will again carry out the mission of the Family Nutrition Education Program (FNEP) to assist in ending hunger, reducing obesity and promoting lifelong health. FNEP provides nutrition education to Missouri's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP - formerly known as the Food Stamps Program). The NPA provides information in kid-friendly terms and lessons with hands-on activities for youth. Activities include opportunities for taste-testing healthy foods and practicing skills that lead to good health. Education for adults includes nutrition, food safety, physical activity, and food resource management.
The NPA position is open through March 14. The position description can be found online by going to http://extension.missouri.edu/careers/positions_available.html and scrolling down to the Nutrition Program Associate position for Harrison County/NW Region, Job ID#12573. A link to the application process is found on this page. All applications must be made online.
For more information contact FNEP Program Director Penny Crawford at 816-632-7009 or CrawfordPE@missouri.edu, or Janet Hackert at 660-425-6434 or HackertJ@missouri.edu.
Missouri Fence Law
“Missouri continues to have a very complicated fence law, in large part due to the fact that 2 separate laws cover the state depending on the county that your land is in", according to Joe Koenen, Agricultural Business Specialist with the University of Missouri Extension. An Interactive Television (ITV) program to discuss Missouri’s Complicated Fence Law will be held on Tuesday evening, March 11th from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Harrison County Extension Office that is located in the basement of the Court House. There is a $5 charge for this meeting and that covers the program and materials. Pre-registration is recommended as space is limited. Please pre-register by phone (660) 425-6434 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Updating history of extension in Harrison County

You can find some of the entries here on our website, http://extension.missouri.edu/harrison/Exthistharrison.aspx. We wish to update the history of the extension center, which will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2019.
