Extension Associate II

Jasmine Harris-Speight has been working for the Mississippi State University Extension Service helping coordinating numerous Family Consumer Science and 4-H programs for 4 years.
Her responsibilities include planning events for Rural Medical and Science Scholars, Junior Master Wellness Volunteers, Healthy Homes, and Servsafe.
She works alongside specialists and other Extension personnel to maintain content delivery for each program.
“I work with a close-knit team, and we are always supporting and encouraging each other,” said Jasmine. “I get the best of both worlds. I’m able to work with my colleagues on campus but I also get the opportunity to work with many of the Extension agents out in the counties.”
Jasmine wears multiple hats, as there is never a dull moment of her day. She works hard to make sure the programs are run well.
“I started working for Extension the same day I graduated in 2014,” said Jasmine. “After working for a little while, I knew this was where I was supposed to be.”
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her friends and family.
