UW Extension Specialist Receives Career Achievement Award

October 29, 2012

A professor in the University of Wyoming Department of Family and Consumer Sciences and director of Wyoming AgrAbility has received the Career Achievement Award from the National Family Life Specialists' Awards Committee.

“I was extremely honored and humbled,” says Randy Weigel, UW Extension human development specialist in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. “In my 37-year extension career, I’ve had the privilege of working with most of the past recipients.”

 The Career Achievement Award honors an extension state specialist in family life and human development who has made significant contributions with impacts at the national level on extension program development, delivery and evaluation.

Weigel will be honored at 11 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 15, during the National Update and Family Life Specialists’ Awards Presentation webinar hosted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and National Institute of Food and Agriculture.

“Throughout his two decades of service, he has made significant contributions in developing, teaching and evaluating extension programs,” says Brian Higginbotham, family life extension specialist at Utah State University. “His contributions, including presentations and publications, have had multiple impacts outside his home state.”

“I am proud of the proactive, integrated and comprehensive response of extension human development and family life specialists to the emotional needs of farm families facing the farm crisis of the ’80s, and the inclusion of behavioral (mental) health into extension agricultural management education and the National AgrAbility project,” Weigel says.
