A Familiar Face in a New Role

​Scott Monroe, former Extension ANR Educator in Daviess County, began work in a new role on January 1 as Purdue Extension’s new Food Safety Educator.

Scott grew up on a watermelon farm in southwest Indiana and has spent his entire career involved in different facets of the produce industry. He will be based at the Southwest Purdue Agricultural Center near Vincennes; however, his appointment spans all 92 counties.

In his new position, Scott will serve as the point of first connection for produce growers who have issues or questions concerning good agricultural practices and food safety. He will also be working on a statewide basis to build upon Purdue’s previous and current food safety work. This includes development of educational materials, teaching, and involvement in applied food safety research.

Scott can be reached at the Southwest Purdue Ag Center at 812-886-0198.
