HOUSTON – Sonja Stueart-Davis, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service agent for Harris County, has received a 2012 Superior Service Award.
The award was presented Jan. 8 during the annual Texas A&M AgriLife conference in College Station.
As 4-H and youth development leader, Stueart-Davis has assisted and coordinated the Harris County 4-H program by training and partnering with adults, who manage more than 20 4-H clubs, and has coordinated the 4-H County Council, Youth Board and the Ambassador Program.
She was cited for her efforts to mobilize youth to help the city of Houston with disaster preparedness programs and for conducting mother-daughter conferences to “empower youth with leadership and life skills needed to make healthy life choices” while fostering mother-daughter relationships.
Stueart-Davis also led “Passport to Kitchen: Clover Chef Camp” to provide youth with cooking classes on how to prepare and select healthier meals and snacks.
The award is presented to personnel who demonstrate outstanding performance or provide exceptional service to AgriLife Extension, an educational outreach agency of The Texas A&M University System, according to the award guidelines.
“Working with Dr. Davis has been an exciting adventure,” said John L. Beaudion Jr., Harris County Precinct 1 program director. “She replicates a passion for helping others that exemplifies the Extension mission of improving lives of people, businesses and communities across Texas and beyond by providing high quality, relevant educational programs.”
