COLUMBIA, Mo. – Amie Schleicher of Rock Port received the Dr. Ronald J. Turner Global Education Award from University of Missouri Extension.

Schleicher, regional extension livestock specialist, will use the $1,000 award for professional development. She will travel to France and the United Kingdom as part of the Agricultural Leaders of Tomorrow program to learn about the European livestock industry and food production issues.

The Global Education Endowment was established by Turner’s friends and colleagues to honor his contributions to the university’s land-grant mission. Turner, vice president emeritus, was director of extension from 1992 to 2004.
