Clancey Appointed Interim Director of CCE Yates


The Board of Directors of Cornell Cooperative Extension Yates County announces the appointment of Jennifer Clancey to serve as Interim Executive Director following the resignation of Arlene Wilson on May 5th. Jen will address the organization’s immediate needs as the Board begins the search for a permanent Executive Director.

Jen has 17 years of experience working for Cornell Cooperative Extension. Growing up in the Yates County 4-H program, Jen went on to major in Agricultural Education at West Virginia University (Class of 2006) while also serving as the CCE-Yates 4-H summer assistant in 2005. In June 2006, Jen returned to CCE-Yates County as the new 4-H Youth Development Educator. She went on to receive her Master’s in Extension Education from North Carolina State University in 2012. After serving in the educator role for seven years, Jen became the 4-H and Human Ecology Team Leader and currently oversees many Yates County 4-H Youth programs such as public presentations, animal science, geo-caching, and fine arts.
