The mission of University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension is to make a difference in the lives of Kentucky citizens through research-based education. Jointly with UK's other land-grant partner, Kentucky State University, UK Extension takes the university to people in their local communities, addressing issues of importance to all Kentuckians.

Now in her 32nd year as an extension agent, Jennifer Bridge recently received a major national award in recognition of her innovative service and tireless dedication to the people of Meade County.

In this edition of the ‘Behind the Blue’ podcast, Carl Nathe talks with Bridge about the passion she brings to her work and some of the ways this family and consumer sciences agent goes above and beyond in improving the lives of those around her.

"Behind the Blue" is available on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher and Spotify. Become a subscriber to receive new episodes of “Behind the Blue” each week. UK’s latest medical breakthroughs, research, artists and writers will be featured, along with the most important news impacting the university.
