A Park County resident has been nationally recognized for his education work thru the University of Wyoming extension.
Jeremiah Vardiman, northwest area extension educator in agriculture and horticulture, received and Achievement Award at the September National Association of County Agricultural Agents conference in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Vardiman was selected by his peers and director to receive the prestigious award, recognizing the top 1 percent of the membership.
Vardiman works to enhance the research and education of farmers regarding crop production, primarily forage and seed production, sugar beets, dry beans and barley. Kelly Crane, the director of the Univeristy of Wyoming Extension says quote “Vardiman has an unquestionable commitment to serving extension clientele and to ensuring his educational outputs are relevant and impactful,” unquote.
Vardiman was recognized last night along with another Wyoming native – Jeff Edwards received the Distinguished Service Award for his work as Wyoming’s pesticide training coordinator.
