It's our goal as Cooperative Extension professionals to provide practical, research-based education to help individuals, families and communities solve problems and improve lives. We connect local communities to the University of Kentucky and Kentucky State University by providing educational programs and information in areas like farming, gardening, parenting, budgeting, healthy living, and youth, community and economic development.


We want your input to better understand the issues that you see as important to you and to our community. We will use your input to improve existing programs and to develop new educational resources to address the things most relevant to Shelby Countians.


Please take our survey online at or pick up a paper copy at the Extension Office. You don't need to be familiar with Cooperative Extension to participate, and please share with your friends and neighbors so that we can get the most comprehensive view of our community's needs.


The deadline for completing the survey is October 26. It should take no more than 10-15 minutes to complete. Thanks for helping us keep Extension fully connected to our community!
