Extension 100

The Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service (OCES) is dedicating 2014 to celebrating its 100th anniversary of extending knowledge and changing lives. Since it was created with the passage of the Smith-Lever Act in 1914, Extension has worked one-on-one, side-by-side with the farmers and families of Oklahoma solving everyday challenges and local issues. For us, it's personal. It always has been and it always will be.

Even as Extension wraps up its year-long centennial celebration, we’ve already taken a running start at making sure we’re well equipped to serve Oklahomans of all ages for another 100 years. Extension personnel in Oklahoma County happily participated in the July 7 groundbreaking ceremony for a new office set to open in February 2015. Plans also are underway for a new training facility on the same campus. (Photo courtesy of Todd Johnson)
