Alabama Extension has named Mike Reeves as the new county Extension coordinator for Morgan County.  

Reeves is no stranger to Extension or Morgan County as he has served as a regional Extension agent in commercial horticulture since 2008, and prior to that served as an urban regional Extension agent in home grounds and pests.  He began his new duties Jan. 4.

“As county coordinator, I look forward to focusing my Extension efforts in Morgan County where my family’s roots go back to 1835.  It is my honor to be able to work with our excellent county staff, regional agents, Extension specialists, and volunteers to serve the citizens of Morgan County,” said Reeves.     

As a regional agent, Reeves worked directly with commercial horticulture producers in nine counties in northeast Alabama. He is an active member of the Alabama Association of County Agriculture Agents, where he received the Distinguished Service Award in 2015 and the Achievement Award in 2008.  He also is an educational advisor for the Alabama Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association; is on the state horticulture committee of the Alabama Farmers Federation and on the Board of Directors of the Morgan County Farmers Federation.

Reeves holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Horticulture from Auburn University and a Master of Science in Plant and Soil Sciences from Alabama A&M University.

 “Mike brings a wealth of experience and a strong history of success as a regional Extension agent to his new role as the County Extension Coordinator for Morgan County.  Mike is an excellent individual that is innovative and impactful in all he does,” said Stan Windham, Extension assistant director, program operations and innovations
