"At the Johnson County-MU Extension Office we do not just promote the Mizzou colors for one day. Showing off the colors and promoting MU Extension is a year-round experience for us. We have updated the office with new signs, fresh paint and vintage photos of historic structures on campus. We have also opened our office to the public to use our conference rooms for local programs. We take pride in making sure our website has the latest information available and our office having the newest material at our fingertips. We try to take our time to ensure that each customer’s individual needs are met every day. The Johnson County office is the roar of MU Extension. Once a tigerAlways a tiger!"
