Alabama Extension's Russell County office has a new County Extension Coordinator. Jennifer Warr Davidson will begin work June 1.

Davidson comes to Alabama Extension from the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension where she has served for more than 10 years, and as County Extension Director for Muscogee County, Georgia since 2012. Through her various roles within Georgia Extension, she has had the opportunity to work with all aspects of Extension, including agriculture and natural resources, nutrition education, 4-H, and family and consumer sciences. She has implemented various educational programs such as yearly green industry trainings for professional, homeowner programs and Master Gardeners. As a CEC, she implemented procedures to increase productivity within the Muscogee County office, managed personnel at all levels, administered a yearly budget of more than $1.25 million, and worked with local, state and national leaders to continue the development of Extension.

"I am very excited and humbled at the opportunity to serve the residents of Russell County," said Davidson. "I believe that bringing the research-based knowledge of the land grant universities to increase the quality of life of our residents is needed more than ever before in this age of easy Internet searches that often result in inaccurate information being passed around."

Davidson has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Horticulture from Auburn University and a Master of Science Degree in Horticulture from Auburn University.

"Jennifer brings a strong work ethic and solid Extension experience to this position," said Stanley Windham, assistant director of Program Operations Innovations at Alabama Extension. "She has a successful history with Georgia Extension and her expertise will be an asset to Russell County."
