Albany County’s 4-H educator has received a national Distinguished Service Award for her commitment to professional improvement and 4-H.

Mary Louise Wood received the honor from the National Association of Extension 4-H Agents (NAE4-HA) in October during its annual conference in New Orleans.                 

“She was recognized because of her professional attitude and accomplishments, commitment to professional improvement and outstanding work in the field of 4-H youth development,” says Megan Brittingham, president of the Wyoming Association of Extension 4-H Agents (WAE4-HA).

A University of Wyoming Extension educator since 2007, she previously volunteered for 25 years as a 4-H leader. She is the immediate past president of WAE4-HA and received its Champion Educator Award in 2014 in recognition of her commitment to the Wyoming State Fair and Rodeo.

A regular attendee at NAE4-HA conferences, she promotes and champions colleagues in the field of youth development, Brittingham says.

“Mary Louise enjoys working with youth and volunteers of all ages, and believes that ‘if you love what you do, it is not work,’” she says.
