Sue Anderson in University of Wyoming Extension’s Natrona County office of has received extension’s highest secretarial honor for the second time.

Anderson received the Frances Freese Secretary of the Year award during the recent Extension Secretary Conference in Thermopolis. She also received the honor in 2005. Anderson, who joined UW Extension in 1985, carried out her responsibilities plus those of the 4-H educator for more than 13 months while the position remained open.

"She handled the additional responsibilities with fortitude and strength rarely seen in an administrative assistant,” wrote a nominator.

She recruited new 4-H volunteers and members, and was in charge of 4-H activities at the county fair for two years. “She put in many extra hours and sacrificed her personal schedule in order to ensure everything within 4-H was flowing smoothly,” wrote another nominator.

Anderson helped Joddee Jacobsen learn 4-H duties when Jacobsen was hired as the 4-H educator earlier this year.

The Frances Freese award recognizes extension secretaries for outstanding contributions and accomplishments. Freese worked at the Wind River Indian Reservation extension office, then moved to the Fremont County office, where she worked for 25 years.

UW Extension has offices in every county and the Wind River Indian Reservation.
