Dr. Sandy Wiggins, Extension specialist for environmental health and housing in the Department of 4-H Youth Development and Family and Consumer Sciences, has been named grievance coordinator for the N.C. Cooperative Extension Service, effective Oct. 1. She replaces Dr. Wayne Matthews, who retired June 30.
