The Raymond A. Schindler Excellence in Community Development Extension Award recognizes a CD Extension professional for significant programmatic strengths, major contributions, and innovative approaches achieved over the course of their Extension career with a $1500 cash award.

The award has been named in honor of Raymond A. Schindler. Ray was one of the first Extension regional CD specialists who helped shape the Extension CD profession we know today. Ray’s contributions, from the earliest stages of the program area (early 1960s) to the present day as faculty emeritus, have been far reaching and impactful. 

Nominations for this award must be made by an OSU Extension peer or team. Email the completed nomination form to David Civittolo (civittolo.1@osu.edu) by November 1.
