The Mississippi State University Extension Service has strengthening its administrative team by adding a second associate director. Paula Threadgill formerly served as the state program leader for Family and Consumer Sciences and the interim state program leader for the 4-H Youth Development program. Threadgill has worked for MSU since 1994 in a variety of capacities. She earned a bachelor’s degree in home economics from the University of Alabama, a master’s degree in home economics from the University of Montevallo and a doctoral degree in agriculture and Extension education with an emphasis in rural sociology from MSU. After serving as a district director with the MSU Extension Service for the northwest region, Threadgill taught in MSU’s School of Human Sciences for five years and became an Extension professor. She joined the Extension Service’s administrative team in April 2010. Joe Street, who currently serves as an Extension associate director and interim head of the Delta Research and Extension Center, will continue to lead Agriculture and Natural Resources programming and oversee the Boll Weevil Eradication Program and the Mississippi Horse Park.
