Project Manager Jill Sump was invited to contribute to a panel assembled by the chair of the Colorado Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC). The panel’s objective was to “begin discussion of how best to provide information to different cultures.” Ms. Sump helped provide perspectives of the “rural community” on disability, living independently, and other related issues.
The Colorado Extension AgrAbility team was awarded the 2010 Epsilon Sigma Phi Team Award. Colorado State University Extension (CSUE) and the CSUE Zeta Chapter of Epsilon Sigma Phi, the National Honorary Extension Fraternity, annually recognize outstanding work of CSUE staff and teams who “respond to and incorporate into a specific educational program one or more critical issues”. Among those receiving recognition was CSUE’s network of staff across the state, Easter Seals Colorado, Goodwill Industries of Denver, Mercy Regional Medical Center, and the Colorado Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.
