COLUMBIA, Mo. ­— "We are very pleased that Gov. Nixon has identified funds to enable MU Extension to be part of the solution to Missouri's economic crisis," University of Missouri Chancellor Brady Deaton said. "Extension's ability to stimulate economic development, create jobs, train the workforce, educate Missourians about nutrition and preventative health care, and provide pathways for our youth to contribute to Missouri's economic success is being recognized, and we are grateful.  We know the millions of citizens across Missouri who have benefitted from Extension will celebrate this news."
