The Career Specialist Award is the most prestigious award that the USU Extension Specialist Association can bestow on an individual. In January of 2020 Dr. Larry Rupp was honored with this award at the annual Utah Extension Conference. 

The award is given to an individual who effectively uses a variety of educational methods, such as mass media, publications, high-tech methods and direct teaching, conducts, publishes and disseminates applied research, generates monetary and cooperative support for programs, works well with colleagues in counties and departments, and works with enthusiasm, dedication and willingness to go the extra mile.
