"I like working with and being an integral part of a community. The relationships built with farmers, 4-H'ers, and community leaders really make this career enjoyable."
Adam Probst, Woodford County

“If you have a program idea but don't know how to get started, chances are that somewhere within the nationwide network of extension agents is someone who can help you." -Kevin Lindsay, Fayette County

Beth Wilson
“As an agent, you are trained to give the best possible solution to a real-world problem. There's a lot of satisfaction in that. You are not micromanaged by a supervisor. You must be internally driven to provide information to residents of your county and to address issues vital to your own community."
-Beth Wilson, Pulaski County
