AMARILLO – Amy Wagner once crossed state lines to take a position with Texas AgriLife Extension Service. She’s moving again, still going east, but this time she will only be crossing county lines.
Wagner began her AgriLife Extension career in 2006 when she was named the family and consumer science agent in Oldham County. Effective July 1, she will assume the same position for Potter County, according to Danny Nusser, district AgriLife Extension administrator.
“Amy has proven to be a very knowledgeable and proven educator,” Nusser said. “She will continue to provide the residents of Potter County with outstanding programming in the areas of family and consumer sciences and youth development. She does a great job of working with local clientele to determine the needs of the county and involving them in decisions and implementation of programs to meet these needs.
“Amy is a team player, hard worker and dedicated employee,” he said. “She will become a valuable member of the Potter County community and will do a great job of working with the existing AgriLife Extension staff to provide unbiased, proven information to Potter County citizens.”
“I am excited about this move and I am looking forward to providing educational programs for youth and adults in Potter County,” Wagner said.
Prior to moving to Texas, Wagner worked in Portales, N.M. as a nutrition educator for the New Mexico State University Cooperative Extension.
She is a native of Cimarron, N.M. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Eastern New Mexico University and her master’s degree from New Mexico State University.
