Boone County’s Amanda Mogensen leads state association

Five decades ago, Nebraska took a major step forward by creating a system of local boards to explain the role of Nebraska Extension and advocate for the partnerships that enable its many services across the state.
On Feb. 8, 2022, the Nebraska Association of County Extension Boards held its 50th anniversary event in Lincoln to celebrate that history and point to Extension’s ongoing role in the life of the state.
Nebraska Extension is one of the few institutions “that can say they are physically serving every single county in the state,” notes NACEB President Amanda Mogensen of Boone County. “It’s pretty neat to be able to advocate for that, and support that, as a county board member.”
Similarly, she says, NACEB has a county extension board in each of Nebraska’s 93 counties. In all, the association’s membership includes more than 500 people.
