Kathy Anderson has been Extension Horse Specialist for the University of Nebraska with teaching and extension responsibilities since 1991. She has built a highly respected, visible and comprehensive equine program bridging youth development, horse owner education, and development of undergraduate students. It is common for her to develop relationships with youth during their 4-H years, advise them as undergraduates, and then assist them post-graduation on career paths. Anderson is an extension and teaching professional who has used a variety of methods to promote and deliver educational activities. Each program is an expression of her commitment to provide a quality educational experience to participants of all ages. Her contributions to undergraduate students are alone meritorious; however, when her contributions to youth through her national and state extension programming are added, the educational innovations and resources are truly distinguished.
