John Cobourn, a water resources specialist with the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension, was presented the Joint Council of Extension Professionals Award for Creative Excellence.
The award is granted to Cooperative Extension individuals or small teams who address emerging or existing issues in novel ways.
Cobourn was chosen out of seven national finalists, who were selected from several regional nominees.
Terry Reynolds replaces Michael Brown, who Gov. Steve Sisolak named last week as director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.
