Lander Native receives UW Extension's newer employee award

Effectiveness in working with educators in several specialty areas is among reasons an Albany County University of Wyoming Extension educator has received the Newer Employee Recognition Award. Brian Sebade received the honor in Riverton Wednesday, Nov. 11, during extension’s annual training. Sebade was an extension educator based in Crook County and serving northeast Wyoming for four years before transferring this year to Albany County and working with residents in southeastern counties. He has been the area chair and served on several extension issue teams, including small acreage, management intensive grazing school, Exploring the Nature of Wyoming, Wyoming rangeland plants handbook, living with wildfire guide and Wyoming Youth 4-H forestry. Wrote one nominator, “His dedication to a superior product makes him an excellent cooperating partner. Attention to detail and follow-through are admirable qualities he possesses.” Sebade, from Lander, received his bachelor’s degree in 2008 and master’s degree in 2010 from the University of Wyoming in rangeland ecology and watershed management. *Feature Photo: Brian Sebade, UW Extension / Pitchengine Communities* #county10 #news
