Jo Weltruski to close out long Extension career

Jo Weltruski, long time office manager and secretary at the Boone County Extension office, will be retiring at the end of 2021.
An open house in her honor is planned Friday, Dec. 17, from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Extension office in the Boone County Agriculture & Education Center on the fairgrounds.
Jo had worked in the Extension office for nearly four years, 1970 to 74, before leaving to raise her family.
She came back to the Extension office in May of 1987 and has worked there since, logging more than 38 years total. Through that time, she has come to know many Boone County families through 4-H and Extension programs.
