Layne Langley, LSU AgCenter Extension agent for West Feliciana and Livingston parishes, won several awards for her efforts to promote a greater quality of life among young people and the community at the Louisiana Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences’ annual convention held recently in Natchitoches.
Langley won awards in photography, school wellness and family health and wellness and picked up the Florence Hall and Maxine Reeves Memorial awards.
The Florence Hall Award is presented for an outstanding program recognizing new concerns and interests of families and involving people in planning and implementing programs that benefit families, a news release said.
The Maxine Reeves Memorial Award encourages and recognizes professional development in the National Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences.
Langley also was elected LEAFCS vice president of Professional Development.
“I always knew I wanted to be a 4-H agent,” said Langley, who has been involved in 4-H and Extension service since her youth in Lafayette Parish.
Langley has a vocational home economics education degree and a master’s degree from University of Louisiana-Lafayette, and received her 4-H Youth Development Specialization in 2001. She began her extension career as an assistant extension agent with LSU AgCenter in December 1994.
