During the recent Annual Meeting of the State Bar in Billings, Marsha A. Goetting, MSU Extension Family Economics Specialist, received the 2019 Distinguished Service Award.  She was nominated by members of the Business, Estates, Trusts, Tax and Real Property Section.

The award reflects the respect the State Bar has for her development of 43 MontGuides (fact sheets) in the estate planning area.  “Marsha has been a tireless friend of the BETTR Section and the State Bar of Montana. Her work has been invaluable.  We were most pleased to recognize her with our Distinguished Service Award,” stated John Mudd, Executive Director of the State Bar.

For over 40 years she has solicited the input by the section’s attorneys to assure the MontGuide information is legally accurate.  As Justin Bryan of the Bryan Law Firm in Bozeman wrote, “Our office really appreciates the service MSU Extension provides the public through its MontGuides, and are honored to assist.”
