Entry Description

STATEHOUSE — State Reps. Woody Burton (R-Whiteland) and John Price (R-Greenwood) met with representatives from the Johnson County Purdue Extension at the Statehouse on Tuesday. 

Purdue Extension offers a variety of programs to Hoosiers in the areas of agriculture and natural resources, health and human sciences, economic and community development, and 4-H and youth development. Their specialists work in all 92 counties, yielding practical solutions to local problems and providing the link between Land Grant research and Indiana citizens. According to their website, Purdue Extension is one of the nation's largest providers of scientific research-based information and education.

Purdue Extension youth educators help young Hoosiers develop talents, life skills and leadership abilities through 4-H clubs and county fairs, and also through school enrichment and community programs. Their Captain Cash program teaches third graders concepts about earning, saving, spending and borrowing money.

“The Johnson County Purdue Extension provides a unique opportunity to learn the real life skills that are not always taught in schools,” said Rep. Burton. “I appreciate their efforts in educating Indiana’s future leaders.”

Purdue Extension representatives shared their annual report with Reps. Burton and Price and spoke about their upcoming initiatives. They emphasized that with an increased number of jobs coming to Indiana, it is imperative that we have a skilled labor force ready to fill these jobs. They thanked Reps. Burton and Price for their continued support and look forward to continuing their partnership.

“It is always great meeting with innovative groups such as Purdue Extension,” said Rep. Price. “Their efforts in education and research are the foundation of job creation for Hoosiers across the state.”
