Putting Knowledge to Work!
The West Virginia University Extension works to provide solutions in your community through key programs and resources, including agriculture and natural resources; 4-H and youth development; food and nutrition; health and wellness; financial planning; and home gardening. These research-based programs and services are available to all Marshall residents thanks to the tremendous support of our community members, local organizations, volunteers and local partners, including the Board of Education and County Commission.
Marshall County Highlights
- Health educator, Molly Poffenbarger, wrote and obtained a $15,000 award from Chevron to hold pop-up Farmer’s Markets in Marshall County schools. (Unfortunately, due to the pandemic the markets were put on hold until 2021.)
- Four Marshall County 4-H members represented the state of West Virginia teams at the National Virtual Livestock Quiz Bowl, Equine Quiz Bowl, and Livestock Judging Team hosted by the University of Utah.
- Community Education Outreach Service (CEOS) members made approximately 200 masks to meet a need at local nursing homes and West Virginia University Health System.
