Alumni Awards for Excellence in Extension

Established in 1975 by the Alumni Association, the Alumni Award for Extension Excellence goes to outstanding members of the extension faculty. The award is presented annually to two Virginia Cooperative Extension staff members who have made outstanding contributions outside the classroom. One award is given to an Extension specialist and one is given to an Extension agent. Each recipient is awarded a $2,000 cash prize. It was presented for the first time in 1976.
