|-per Cheryl Buck, Extension communication manager
Many thanks to Marlee Stollar, who worked as a graduate student associate in the director’s office this summer, while also completing an internship with the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission. She has worked for Extension for several years through her roles as the Community Development student assistant and a past student associate in the director’s office.
Marlee has assisted with several communication projects over the past couple of months, including updating and posting FAQs and other info on our COVID-19 resources pages; archiving online all 2020 issues of News and Notes; developing several 2021 issues of News and Notes and a related style guide; compiling land-grant history background materials for public use soon; and preparing some items for Farm Science Review. You will also see her other work as soon as we are able to post online some new documents and instructions. This includes some new Zoom backgrounds, a job aid for the Extension Personnel Directory, marketing campaign materials and resources, Extension success story curation, and tweaks to the infographics (and instructions) that she designed and developed for Extension last summer.
Marlee graduated from The Ohio State University in May 2020 with a bachelor's degree in agricultural communication and a double minor in agribusiness and professional writing. She is now a second-year master’s student with an agricultural communication specialization. Her research areas are agricultural communication, food nonprofit organizations, and consumer food and nutrition knowledge. In the future, Marlee would like to manage communications for a nonprofit organization focusing on food and nutrition education and food access.
