I've read with great interest Paul Hill's (http://twitter.com/4hpro) recent posts on how to fix Cooperative Extension (http://www.paulallenhill.com/). Not only does he have a great first name, he's also sharing wonderful and provocative ideas on how Extension needs to adapt to a changing world. But Extension is NOT broken!
When I look around at my NC Cooperative Extension colleagues, I see hardworking individuals that are making a difference in their communities. I see individuals who are respected by their customers. I see Agents who are making a difference with their educational programs. This is our legacy, and also our future.
