September 24, 2012, Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) hosted their annual student poster event. The fourth annual gathering showcased the work of the CCE Summer Interns. Attendees included Deans Alan Mathios of the College of Human Ecology (CHE) and Kathryn Boor of the College of Agriculture & Life Sciences (CALS), many CCE association executive directors and other CCE staff, faculty, donors, and family and friends of student presenters. CCE Director Helene Dillard made remarks, including appreciation to Connie Kan and the CALS and CHE CCE Associate Directors (Chris Watkins and Jennifer Tiffany, respectively).

The twenty-one 2012 summer interns presented posters based on their summer work. Of those, three worked with BCTR faculty:

  • Ashley Jones worked with Rachel Dunifon on the project Parent Education in Tompkins County
  • Lydia Gill worked with John Eckenrode on the project The PROSPER Partnership Model in New York State: An Evidence-based Delivery System for Preventing Risky Behaviors in Youth, Promoting Positive Youth Development, and Strengthening Families in Schuyler and Livingston Counties
  • Robbie Neff worked with Stephen Hamilton on the project Research for Continuous Improvement of 4-H in Erie County and at the BCTR

Most of the presenting interns had attended the BCTR-hosted workshop on poster design, conducted by Mann Library's Camille Andrews on September 4, and part of the BCTR student workshop series.

The Cornell Chronicle recently posted a story on the CCE Summer Interns, highlighting the work of a number of CHE students. The article can be read here.
