Gordon Warren Land-Grant Award
The Gordon Warren University Extension Land-Grant award begain in 1991 with the first award given to Gordon Warren at the extension Annual Conference "to recognize someone who exemplifies the land-grant mission of the University of Missouri System and University Extension." Warren was a civic leader in Pulaski County (City of Richland), who served many years on the county extension council, was mayor, school board member, member of the Missouri Bankers Association, Missouri Health Coordinating Council and more — all roles in which he linked university resources with people's needs. Warren also was an avid supporter of Lincoln University.
