IT'S A CASE of musical chairs at the Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Extension Service's research centers across the state.

Effective Dec. 1, Joe Street, Extension rice specialist, has been promoted to interim head, or station director, of the North Mississippi Research and Extension Center in Verona, Miss. Street, who has served as Extension rice specialist, researcher and professor at the Delta Research and Extension Center in Stoneville, Miss., replaces Reuben Moore in the position.

Meanwhile, Moore is now the new associate director of the Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Extension Service (MAFES), based in Starkville, Miss. In his new capacity, Moore will be primarily responsible for the support units of MAFES and principle liaison with the branches and research and Extension centers.

Another familiar face, Tim Walker, will fill in for Joe Street as Mississippi Extension rice specialist.
