Second Top Extension Service Official Retiring

Jan 17, 2013

A second top official of the Louisiana Cooperative Extension Service is retiring.

The LSU AgCenter said Monday that Dwight Landreneau — an AgCenter associate vice chancellor and associate director of the extension service — will retire June 1.

On Jan. 4, extension service director and AgCenter vice chancellor Paul Coreil said he will leave the administration July 1 and continue with other professional obligations until Sept. 15.

Landreneau has held his current job for six years, after nearly three years as secretary of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and — from 1998 to 2004 — as assistant secretary of the state Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism. Before that, he had worked 20 years for the AgCenter as a 4-H agent, county agent and area crawfish specialist.
