Cason is New Midway Extension District Agent

K State ExtensionRussell and Ellsworth County's K-State Research and Extension Agencies have combined, longtime agents John Stannard and Joann Paschal have retired, and a new face has been hired here in Russell to continue the work of the successful agency.

Dusti Cason, a New Mexico native, began her job as 4-H and youth development agent with the newly formed Midway Extension District in March of this year. She will work closely with fellow extension agents in Ellsworth County to share resources and to allow specialization of services.

Cason says for the past four months she has simply been learning the ropes and what her job duties will be, but she is very happy with the opportunity she's been given and she is excited to get this year's Russell County Free Fair underway.

For more information about the Midway Extension District or local 4-H and youth development opportunities, contact Cason at the Russell County Courthouse.
