LITCHFIELD — Local staff at the University of Illinois Extension of Montgomery County nominated Lincoln Land Community College in Litchfield as a 2023 Community Partner. LLCC-Litchfield was selected for its continued support of University of Illinois Extension programs.
The Extension Office continues using LLCC-Litchfield for its facilities for our large, unit-wide and Montgomery County events. Their facilities are accessible to participants and help reach new audiences within the surrounding communities.
“Partnering with LLCC exposes our participants to the college, and allows their students to be exposed to Extension programs in return. A bonus of working with them is how friendly and helpful their staff is when accommodating us for events,” said Cassie O’Connell, Extension Marketing and Communication Program Coordinator.
University of Illinois Extension serving Christian, Jersey, Macoupin, and Montgomery counties are exceptionally proud to be able to provide this award to LLCC and to thank them for their service to Extension.
“Illinois Extension relies on strong community partnerships in all aspects of our work. From providing facilities or volunteers to assist with programming to offering financial support or exposure to new audiences, Extension staff, and volunteers are grateful and appreciative of each of our community partners and the support they provide,” said Sara Marten, Extension county director.
This award is sponsored by the Extension Council of the University of Illinois Extension, serving Christian, Jersey, Macoupin, and Montgomery counties. The council recognizes a community partner throughout our four counties each year.
The Extension Council is a volunteer board that serves in an advisory role cooperating with Extension staff in planning, promoting, developing, implementing, evaluating, and financing an Extension program designed to meet the needs, interests, and resources of the local communities.
