Nancy Teter, Colorado State Cooperative Extension 4-H youth development administrative assistant in the state office, was recognized Sept. 26 for her contributions to Cooperative Extension during her 15 years of service. The Meritorious Support Service Award is given each year by Epsilon Sigma Phi, the Cooperative Extension professional fraternity.
Teter supports three or more Cooperative Extension faculty and her duties span from arranging training events and travel to formatting articles for professional publication. She is often praised by her colleagues for her editing and proofreading ability and her assistance in writing grants. She is noted for her integrity, strong character and diplomacy.
Teter is credited for directing Web site development for several projects, maintaining newsletters, formatting and distributing handbooks and providing fiscal management for Cooperative Extension programs under her support.
"Nancy is to be commended for her flexibility and positive attitude," said Milan Rewerts, Colorado State Cooperative Extension director. "She continually provides outstanding support and is a quick learner, who readily adjusts to new situations and assignments."
In her spare time, Teter serves as a volunteer for the annual campus food drive, Cans Around the Oval; in the Laporte community; and in her church.
