UNL Extension in Cherry County invites everyone to their centennial celebration to be held during the Cherry County Fair on Saturday, August 9 at 2 PM CT under the big tent. Free Centennial Ice Cream from the University of Nebraska Dairy Store will be served by the Cherry County Extension Board. Former Extension Educators Harry Stokely and Bud Stolzenburg, along with current Educator Jay Jenkins, will be on hand to reminisce and share stories about Extension through the years in Cherry County.
Nebraska's and the nation's Cooperative Extension system turned 100 years old earlier this year. The Smith-Lever Act, which established Cooperative Extension through land-grant universities in partnership with federal, state and local governments, was signed on May 8, 1914.
Today the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension in Nebraska has educators, assistants and office staff in 83 of Nebraska's 93 counties. Local offices rely on cooperation with host counties, which provide office space and funding for support staff. County Extension boards provide advice and direction to local programs.
