Promotional item orders available at WVU Jackson’s Mill


The branded promotional items you ordered for your county have arrived, and been sorted and packaged. If you haven’t already picked them up, your county’s materials are at the Southeastern Learning Center at WVU Jackson’s Mill.

Shipping to each county was not practical this year because more items were available for order, making the resulting packages larger. It came down to a trade-off between offering more materials for your use and shipping to each office. The Administrative Team has offered to make deliveries to counties they’re traveling to, whenever possible.

The items will remain at Jackson’s Mill through Annual Meeting for counties that are unable to get their materials earlier. Items that were backordered (particularly pens and low-end folders) will be mailed to your county when they become available.

If you need additional items throughout the year, you can purchase them from the companies listed here.

Are You Missing the News?

You e-news-header2 might be if you aren’t reading the weekly Communications ENEWS – created by Extension, for Extension. Comm ENEWS isn’t a replacement for the Extension FOCUS, but rather a more frequent publication that delivers specific things you need. In it, you’ll find general-release news stories, announcements, articles for use in county publications, directory updates, catastrophic leave requests and links to where WVU Extension has appeared in the news around the state. You’ll also find a helpful tip each week.

Because Comm ENEWS is weekly, it may contain short turn-around announcements that aren’t received in time to fit the FOCUS publication schedule. The things you enjoy about FOCUS will still be there, but if you skip Comm ENEWS, you may miss something important!
