“The dynamics of small communities has always been a passion of mine. The hospitality, laid back pace, everyone knowing each other (and in many cases even related), camaraderie, and yes even the messiness of small town life is what I’m drawn too. It’s the impact of a small town that gave me the desire to study human development in college. I hope to share my knowledge through different educational classes within the Noble County communities”, says Lynne.

Lynne was raised in Blackwell, OK where she met and married her husband of 37 years. In the early years of marriage, she was a stay home mom, raising their four sons. Later, she took a job at a local custom drapery service which was a perfect fit because of her love of sewing. After receiving her degree, she went on to teach Family and Consumer Science at Blackwell Middle School.

Lynne’s educational background includes an associate degree in business from Northern Oklahoma College, a bachelor degree in Family and Consumer Science from Oklahoma State University, and certification in Serve Safe.                                                                                                                                 



Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service (OCES) links you directly to Oklahoma State University and the research-based information available through the land-grant university system.  OCES provides practical answers, based on scientific finding, to questions about agriculture and the environment; family life, health and nutrition; and rural and economic development.  Its educational programs are designed to enhance the quality of life for all Oklahomas-urban as well as rural.

Under the umbrella of the OCES there are four main disciplines: Agriculture, Community Development, 4-H & Youth Development and Family & Consumer Science.

In the FCS and 4-H/Youth program areas, programming is focused in one of three impact areas on a state level.  The impact areas are based upon input from National Initiatives, Advisory Committee results, clientele needs, and expertise of the local Educator.  The impact areas are: Family Resiliency; Family Economic Well-Being; and Food, Nutrition and Health.  Below is a listing of major programming, lesson titles, resources available in each of the impact areas.
