UNL Extension Centennial Celebration:
Area SREC festivities already underway!
In 2014, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Smith-Lever Act, which established the Cooperative Extension Service, a state-by-state national network of educators who extend university-based research and knowledge to the people. For 100 years, the Smith-Lever Act has stimulated innovative research and vital education programs for youth and adults through progressive information delivery systems that improved lives and help shape our nation. Join us as we celebrate 100 years of extending knowledge and changing lives.
Throughout the year, UNL Extension plans to celebrate all that we are: Responsive, Innovative, Trusted. UNL Extension has spent 100 years elevating youth, families, farms and communities in Nebraska.
It's something to be proud of and we are! We've been your partner, someone in your backyard. We know Nebraska communities: serving your family, your friends and your neighbors. We share your best interests with research-based information that you can trust. UNL Extension is real people working in the trenches to make your life better.
We plan to serve Nebraska for the next 100 years and beyond with the same unbiased dedication that we have given these past 100 years. Won't you join us in celebrating Extension in Nebraska? Check in with your local Extension Office to find out when the celebration is planned in your area or help us cap off our celebration at this year's Nebraska State Fair.
The Nebraska Dairy Store has outdone themselves with a new flavor of icecream just for the occasion, taking legacy and carrying it forward. The Scarlet and Cream ice cream we've all come to know and love is the main ingredient in a new Centennial flavor. Stop in the next time you are on UNL East Campus, they'd love to serve you!
Our Centennial facebook page will feature wrap-ups of the ongoing, year-long festivities and upcoming events.
