Purdue Agriculture 2022 TEAM Award honors Extension Succession Planning Team

Created in 1995, the Purdue Agriculture TEAM Award honors the interdisciplinary team achievements of faculty and staff each year. The 2022 TEAM Award has been presented to the Purdue Extension Succession Planning Team

Helping farming and small business families in some of their greatest moments of need, the Purdue Extension educators and specialists on the Succession Planning Team have worked since 2011 to navigate the process of transferring ownership of the company to continue the family’s legacy. The TEAM award honors the team’s efforts to cultivate strong Indiana farm families through the succession planning process.  

The Succession Planning Team offers regional workshops and visits family farms to assist in the often-complex process of passing down a family business. Some of the topics covered are financial skills, communication strategies, business structures and risk management tools. Fees for the team’s services are significantly reduced due to grant funding by the North Central Extension Risk Management Education Center. 

TEAM award

The Succession Planning Team Extension members include: Heather Caldwell, Linda Curly, Miranda Edge, Ed Farris, Kelly Heckaman, Nicholas Held, Michael Langemeier, Maria Marshall, Jenna Nees, Jeff Pell, Krista Pullen, Denise Schroeder, Kyle Weaver and Renee Wiatt.  

The team was presented with the 2022 TEAM Award on Friday, January 27 during a celebration in the Deans' Auditorium in Pfendler Hall.
