Innovative avenues in information delivery and professional expertise earned Tana Stith the University of Wyoming Extension Creative Excellence Recognition Award.
Extension’s manager of the Office of Communications and Technology, Stith received the honor during the organization’s recent annual training in Laramie.
Nominators cited the professionalism of the office reflected in numerous interdisciplinary and cross-campus projects. Her collaboration is friendly, energetic and goal-oriented, producing a professional presence at the university and across Wyoming, nominators stated.
A specialist in graphic design, Stith was the driving force behind the “100 Years of Extension” traveling display. Through photographs, articles and interactive computer displays, the presentation shows how UW Extension has responded to Wyoming citizen needs since 1914.
Stith’s expertise is reflected in her work with extension’s quarterly magazine, “Barnyards & Backyards”; extension’s yearly publication CONNECT; the Wyoming Agricultural Experiment station’s annual research magazine “Reflections”; and “Field Days Bulletin.” The UW Extension Office of Communications and Technology team has received many state and national awards for publications and video work.
