MSU Extension celebrates 100 years in Cheboygan County
Michigan State University Extension celebrates 100 years of providing education, resources and assistance to Cheboygan County individuals, families, community agencies and local businesses.
Dec. 1, 2015, marked a very special centennial celebration for Michigan State University Extension in Cheboygan County. On Dec. 1, 1915, Carl Knopf began work as an agricultural agent and the first MSU Extension employee to work in Cheboygan County. Since then, MSU employees have been working diligently in the county to provide a wide range of services and support, including agriculture, 4-H and youth development, nutrition education, natural resources, leadership and community engagement, and early childhood education.
Cheboygan County MSU Extension staff, including District Coordinator Lisa Anderson and Greening Michigan Institute Director Dave Ivan, gathered with county commissioners and community members to celebrate the partnership between MSU Extension and the Cheboygan community spanning 100 years.
As a result of ongoing community assistance, MSU Extension has been able to provide knowledge and resources to local residents in order to improve their lives, raise healthy families and build communities throughout multiple generations.
Thank you to Cheboygan County for their continued support in helping MSU Extension provide education, resources and assistance to individuals, families, community agencies and local businesses for 100 years and for many more to come!
