Penn State Cooperative Ext. names interim director


UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State Cooperative Extension has named Dennis Calvin interim director effective July 1.

Calvin, who has been associate director since January 2006, will fill the post while a national search is conducted.

Daney Jackson recently announced he would step down after nearly five years as director of extension.

Calvin joined the faculty in Penn State’s Department of Entomology in 1985.

He has developed expert systems and other computer-based decision-support systems for insect pest management in corn and alfalfa and trained county-based extension educators, private consultants, farmers and agribusiness personnel in pest management for field and forage crops and stored products.
