The Wyoming County Cornell Cooperative Extension Board of Directors has selected Laura Fuller as their Executive Director, a position that includes leadership of the 100 year old organization as well as regional oversight for the Western Shared Business Network.
Laura completed her Master’s Degree from Ohio State University with specializations in Sociology of Agriculture, Rural Community Studies, and Community Development. She began her Extension Career setting up 4-H After School Clubs for at-risk youth in Ohio's urban communities and teaching healthy nutrition in 4th grade classrooms. She has held appointments as a 4-H Educator and a Community Development Educator, and specializes in Workforce, Organizational, and Leadership Development. Laura has extensive experience writing grants and serving on regional and national committees to advance the work of Cooperative Extension. Outside of Extension, she served for eight years as an Ombudsman for the US Navy where she worked with reservists and their families to overcome problems during mobilizations and to support military families in times of crisis.
“We have long tenured staff and volunteers who are competent, respected leaders and we sought someone with business acumen and roots in research to ensure that our future programming fully explores the needs of our community while addressing our long-term viability,” says Board President Keith Kibler. “We are confident Laura will add incredible energy and passion to an already impressive team at CCE of Wyoming County.”
“I am so excited to join the Wyoming County CCE team. Seeing the beauty of Wyoming County and the dedication of the staff and volunteers made it an easy decision. From meeting local stakeholders who took time out of their busy days to show me their farms and businesses, to the incredible turn out at the job presentations, it is clear that the citizens in Wyoming County care about what we do, and I look forward to being a part of that,” states Laura Fuller.
Laura will begin her role on October 2nd.
