Extension Council

The Story County Extension Council is elected by the people of Story County. The Story County Extension Council, county staff, and ISU Extension and Outreach staff work together to provide research-based learning opportunities for our people. Through this partnership, we carry Iowa State University’s land-grant mission across Story County.
