Delaware County Extension Program Director Jade Hargrafen has been named one of two statewide award winners.
Hargrafen has been presented with this year’s County Professional Excellence in Ag and Natural Resources Programming Award.
Hargrafen became director of ISU Extension and Outreach Delaware County in May 2016. Since then, she has worked to support a variety of programs, including Annie’s Project, farmland leasing programs, farm bill education, farm safety day, women in ag and many more.
And with Delaware County ranked in the top ten for total agricultural market value in Iowa, Hargrafen helps to answer questions and provide resources as the Extension’s Program Director.
Hargrafen shares this year’s award with Whitney Weisinger, the Extension program coordinator for Lee County.
