WVU Extension Grant County – Job Opening

Learn more about this employment opportunity.


Our office has changed location. We are now located at 114 North Grove Street in Petersburg,WV. The building our office is currently situated in has served our community well. Many remember actually having gone to school in this building as it has served at a regular classroom and as the Vo-Ag building for Petersburg High School. It has also housed the Grant County Housing Authority, the Commission on Aging, the State Department of Health & Human Resources and most recently the Grant County 911 Mapping Office.

Our old office served us well over the years, but we are excited to be in our new location. We are at a new location, but still offer the same services you have come to expect from our office.
As we will be heading into October soon, a new year of 4-H will be beginning. Our 2015/2016 4-H Year promises to be a great one! With that said we will also be celebrating our awesome 2014/2015 Year on November 1st at our 4-H Achievement Banquet.

Our local CEOS ladies are busy this time of year as well. They are sponsoring a program for the West Virginia Breast Cancer Awareness Day on September 29th from 11:00am- 1:00pm at the Grant County Courthouse. Please come share in this event as they support the fighters, admire the survivors, honor the taken and provide hope for those affected by the disease. These ladies are also raffling off a basket full of goodies to benefit WV Women.

Ms. Cassie, our Nutrition Outreach Instructor with the WV Family Nutrition Program, is gearing up to begin school year programming in qualifying elementary schools across Grant and Hardy counties. She has some new recipes that she is excited to share with these groups of 3rd- 5th Graders. Her program offers healthy eating tips, ideas and recipes that are easy for kids to make and are packed with the nutrition they need.

This fall season is full of activities that are happening through the programs provided by the WVU Extension Service. If you would like more information on any of our programs, please call or stop by our office and we will be happy to provide with the resources you need.
