Congratulations to Mario Magana for receiving the College of Public Health and Human Sciences Excellence in Outreach Award. This was presented on Monday evening at Dean Tammy Bray’s final “Stepping Down” event with CPHHS college faculty. Mario has provided leadership and innovation to developing 4-H programs that meet the need of underserved populations. His Outreach Leadership Institute (OLI) and his 4-H International Camps engage over 1000 young people each year to careers, workforce preparation, leadership skill building and cultural appreciation.
