Winter receives national distinguished service award

Nathan Winter recently received the 2016 Distinguished Service Award from the National Association of County Agriculture Agents during their annual meeting and professional improvement conference held in Little Rock, Arkansas.
This award is given to agents with more than 10 years of service in cooperative Extension and have exhibited excellence in the field of Extension education. This award is only presented to 2 percent of the county Extension educators in Minnesota each year.

His programming efforts focused on crops, small farms, livestock, and sustainable agriculture. Winter has served as the president of the Minnesota Association of Extension Agricultural Professionals two different times, served as regional chair for the Early Career Development Committee, and was selected to be the North Central Region SARE Fellow in 2012.
Winter is now a regional program coordinator for Extension.
