CCE Schoharie & Otsego Introduces Helen Powers-Light

Written By Editor on 3/23/22 | 3/23/22

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schoharie and Otsego Counties (CCE SO) is pleased to announce Helen Powers-Light as the Ag Implementation Specialist for Otsego County. She began in mid-February.

Ms. Powers-Light was born in Cooperstown, NY and grew up in the Hartwick, NY area. She was involved with local agriculture from an early age as several of her family members were farmers and veterinarians within New York. Helen’s interest in agriculture began with her involvement in Otsego County 4-H and her show quality herd of LaMancha dairy goats, which gave Helen the skills and knowledge to pursue agriculture on a collegiate level. Helen graduated from SUNY Cobleskill with an AAS in Animal Industries and BT in Agricultural Business Management before accepting the position of Agriculture Implementation Specialist. Helen continues to improve her small herd of dairy goats and other various livestock as she supports and promotes local agriculture through her personal and professional endeavors!

The Otsego County Ag Implementation Specialist is primarily responsible for coordinating educational, organizational, and economic development efforts in support of the county-adopted Agriculture and Farmland Protection Plan and its Implementation Committee.  Under committee guidance, Helen will work on the marketing and coordination of community based agricultural efforts.

“We are just so pleased to have Helen join our CCE team. Having a personal background and familiarity of the regional agricultural landscape provides Helen with the skills to hit the ground running and help Otsego County continue to develop its agricultural future”, said Marilyn Wyman, CCE SO Interim Executive Director.
