Intern of the Year Award Goes to Cherokee County Resident

The Fred Evans Extension Master Gardener Intern of the Year award is given to a Master Gardener Intern that has exhibited great work ethic and dedication to supporting the mission of Extension through their service volunteer hours. This year, there was  a 3-way tie for the award at the annual Alabama Master Gardener annual conference held in Daphne, AL. One of those award winners was Cherokee County Master Gardener, Kent Huisingh. Kent has exhibited  excellent service to Extension, as well as serving the citizens of Cherokee County.

Bill Holland, president of the Cherokee County Master Gardener’s Association said about Kent: “Kent can always be counted on to help when there is work to be done. He goes out of his way to be helpful. Kent is viewed as a valuable team member by others in our Association. He can be counted on to do what is needed. In addition, he often goes above and beyond in doing the work (he is one of the first to show up for a work day and one of the last to leave). Kent’s leadership, especially in establishing the greenhouse, has been invaluable to our leads.”

Brian Brown, Regional Extension Agent for Cherokee County added: “I hope this award will help show appreciation for Kent’s efforts not only to the Cherokee County Master Gardeners but also to the Master Gardeners of Alabama. He exemplifies the mission of the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, as well as the Alabama Extension Master Gardeners.” Without question, Kent Huisingh is a valued, cherished, and beloved member of the Cherokee County Master Gardener’s, and his award is very well deserved.
