New Family and Consumer Sciences Agent at MSU Extension Office
The Richland County MSU Extension Office welcomes its new Family and Consumer Sciences agent, Carrie Krug. Krug, originally from Laurel, MT graduated from Montana State University in Bozeman in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Family and Consumer Sciences with an emphasis on teaching and a Special Education endorsement.
She began her new position on Wednesday, March 1st. "I like it," said Krug, commenting on Sidney, "It'a a nice area."
Krug became interested in Family and Consumer Sciences during her time at Laurel High School while working closely with a well-liked teacher who worked in the field of FCS. Her interest was also increased by an involvement in 4-H since she was a child. Beginning work as an FCS agent has been an interesting experience. "I'm getting to know the community." said Krug. She will certainly become deeply involved in the community, working with the Richland County Nutrition and Cancer Coalitions, schools, 4-H programs and other local organizations.
As a part of her duties, Krug will be working for MSU outreach, offering classes and programs related to the Family and Consumer Sciences field. Said Krug on her new
venture, "I'm happy to be here, working with the community and making a difference." She can be reached at the Richland County Extension Office at (406) 433-1206.
