Arlington County Board Chair, Jay Fisette, receives an award from Judy Connally, Executive Leadership Council of Virginia Cooperative Extension and former Virginia state representative, for his long-standing support of extension activities. And because he is a “gardener and nice human being,” Connally also gives him an itea virginica for his yard or his garden. Fisette commented he had hoped the award would be someone to take care of his garden. The Arlington County and the City of Alexandria held their annual Extension Showcase on Dec. 1. Virginia Cooperative Extension builds local relationship and collaborative partnerships, helping people put scientific knowledge to work through the commonwealth’s land-grant universities.
