UW Extension Educators in Northeastern Wyoming Receive Honors

November 21, 2016
Stacy Buchholz and Vicki Hayman

Two University of Wyoming Extension educators were honored for their work in northeastern Wyoming during extension’s recent professional development conference in Laramie.

Increasing enrollment and expanding the scope of programming in Weston County has earned 4-H educator Stacy Buchholz the Newer Employee Recognition Award.

She joined the Weston County office five years ago and has either taught or organized volunteer leaders to teach a number of project workshops ranging from traditional 4-H projects to new after-school programs.

Nominators cited her collaboration with other 4-H educators and help conducting a livestock showmanship and fitting clinic for northeast Wyoming.

Vicki Hayman, a nutrition and food safety educator, has received the Diversity Enhancement Award for her culinary ethnic cuisine series of cooking lessons offered throughout northeast Wyoming.

Hayman conducted 21 workshops that included hands-on, applicable recipes to practice cooking ethnic foods. Sessions highlighted the cultures of Brazil, China, Cuba, Germany, Greece, Italy, Ireland, Mexico and Thailand.

Each workshop focused on the culture of the region in terms of tastes and dietary habits, food prep and the symbolism and ritual of a meal.

Based in Weston County, Hayman also serves Campbell, Crook, Johnson and Sheridan counties.
