Joel Sprague Elected to State Extension Advisory Council

Congratulations!   Joel Sprague, Kincaid, was elected to the State Extension Advisory Council (SEAC) in January, 2018.  The Council is a “consultative group to the Director of Extension regarding concerns relating to Extension.”  Membership includes representatives from each of the four Extension Areas in Kansas plus four at-large representatives.  Each February, the SEAC members hold their meeting in Topeka, where they can also make personal visits to Kansas legislators in an advocacy role for Research and Extension.

Joel lives on a small multigenerational family farm with his wife, Stacy, and three children.  In addition, he works in construction as a carpenter.  A former 4-H member, Joel continues to be involved with the 4-H program and has volunteered as a 4-H project leader.  Joel is a former Vocational Agriculture Instructor and FFA Advisor, and served on the Anderson County Extension Council.  Currently he is a board member (and immediate past president) of the Frontier Extension District Board.
