WHEREAS Ms. Sheryl Stanek has served the University of Alaska Fairbanks with distinction in teaching, research and public service from 1989 to 2005; and

WHEREAS Ms. Stanek has responded in exemplary fashion to the educational needs of her clientele through programs reaching across an individual's lifetime, such as nutrition for mothers and infants, home management and food preservation; and has in the process expanded the reach of cooperative extension programs in the Anchorage region, a district that contains half the State's population; and

WHEREAS Ms. Stanek has developed new educational programs and produced numerous publications to address needs particular to Alaska, including the safe collection, storage and use of Alaska's wild and grown foods such as berries, fish and game; and has conscientiously addressed other issues such as wellness in rural communities, recycling, financial planning and advocating for healthy seniors; and

WHEREAS Ms. Stanek has served her district, the University and the State by organizing volunteer programs to address community needs; and has contributed her expertise as an active and thoughtful participant on committees; and has mentored new faculty and is considered by her colleagues as a model of professionalism because her belief in the mission of Extension and the University is represented in her daily activities as a home economist and a faculty member;
