- Tim Brown wants to help keep Oneida County growing.
He'll have that chance as a new agent for the UW-Extension in Rhinelander.
Brown is in his third week as the new Community, Natural Resource, and Economic Development Agent.
"There's so much positive energy in Oneida County, and I'm really privileged to be stepping into it and figuring out how I can help a little bit bring the resources of the university to bear," Brown says.
Brown will work with people and groups to help develop the economy, preserve natural resources, and grow the community in Oneida County.
He comes to Rhinelander after getting a graduate degree at Marquette.
Prior to that, Brown was a Peace Corps volunteer in the Dominican Republic.
