Dennis Newton of Hereford has received the Superior Service Award from Texas Cooperative Extension. Newton, Deaf Smith County Extension agent, received the award Aug. 14 at the 2001 Extension Headquarters Faculty Conference at Texas A&M University.

The Superior Service Award is the highest honor given to faculty and staff by the educational agency, formerly known as the Texas Agricultural Extension Service. Eighteen individuals and three teams were recognized for their outstanding accomplishments. Dr. Chester Fehlis, Extension deputy director, presented the awards.

Newton was cited for exemplary and distinguished leadership in educational programs, on-farm research and result demonstrations for Deaf Smith County crop producers.

He earned a bachelor's degree in agronomy in 1971 and a master's degree in agricultural education in 1979, both from Texas A&M University.
