Thomas Brewer, Jefferson Davis County MSU Extension County Director was awarded the Outstanding Extension Agent Award, as well as the Seaman A. Knapp medallion at the MSU Annual Extension Conference in Starkville on October 27, 2021.

The history of the medallion began in the spring of 2017, when Extension Director Dr. Gary B. Jackson asked Agricultural Communications Head Elizabeth Gregory North to develop a medallion for Extension to give to recipients of the annual Outstanding Extension Faculty, Outstanding Extension Agent, and Director’s Awards. He envisioned something that would hang on a ribbon so faculty could wear it at graduation.  Dr. Jackson commissioned the creation of what became the Seaman A. Knapp medallion as a token of his appreciation for and recognition of the significant contributions of others to Extension’s mission.  Only three specified awards are given each year.
