Innovative avenues in information delivery and professional expertise led to the manager of the Office of Communications and Technology in the University of Wyoming Extension receiving the organization’s Creative Excellence Recognition Award.
Tana Stith received the honor Nov. 5 during the organization’s annual training in Laramie.
Nominators cited the professionalism of the office reflected in numerous interdisciplinary and cross-campus projects. Her collaboration is friendly, energetic and goal-oriented producing a professional presence at the University of Wyoming and across Wyoming, nominators stated.
Stith, whose speciality is graphic design, was the driving force behind the 100 Years of Extension traveling display. Through photographs, articles and interactive computer displays, the presentation shows how UW Extension has responded to Wyoming citizen needs since 1914.
Stith’s expertise is reflected in her work with extension’s quarterly magazine Barnyards & Backyards, extension’s yearly publication CONNECT and the Wyoming Agricultural Experiment station’s annual research magazine Reflections and Field Days Bulletin. The UW Extension Office of Communications and Technology team has received many state and national awards for publications and video work.
Stith joined the University of Wyoming in 1988 and UW Extension in 1990.
