2017 Key Partner Awards – Detroit Public Television


Hi I’m Julie Chapin and I’m one of the
nominators for Detroit Public Television for one of our key partner awards. The
University signed an agreement in January of 2016 and because of our
common mission, Extension became the point person for the University. Much of
our work with them is focusing around early childhood education and family
engagement. So many different topics that there are programming in that we can
highlight our work in ways that really help us to reach communities
particularly in Southeast Michigan but across the state of Michigan. with the
work that Extension is doing. Georgeann:>>I think the thing is we have these shared
values about really helping the citizens of Michigan and trying to address the
needs of the community, and we have great assets here at Detroit Public Television,
the university has incredible assets plus a lot of arms and legs to help us
execute. So I think coming together only allows both organizations to have a much
greater impact than they can have on their own. Rich:>>This partnership is so
important to us and it’s been great. It’s been a great ride, and when you think
about who could do that – great thinking, great extension services team, great
public television station, who could do it? Spartans Will. Of course always Spartans Will. MSU you’ve been terrific to us, we’re excited to work with you, we can’t thank
you enough. You’re great folks and you’re easy and
fun folks to work with, so here’s to five more years, ten more years,
and twenty more years of helping citizens and parents and kids and
everybody who’s involved in making our state better. Thanks
