VERNON — Seth Hall is taking on a new job Nov. 15, but staying true to what he loves – youth and the Rolling Plains area.

Hall will move up U.S. Highway 287, back home and to a program he grew up in, when he starts his new job as the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service 4-H and youth development agent in Wilbarger County.

“We are excited to bring Seth into this position,” said Miles Dabovich, AgriLife Extension district administrator in Vernon. “His knowledge of the county and experience will be a great complement to this strong 4-H program. I have had the opportunity to work with Seth in the past. He loves working with youth. He is not only a teacher, but also a coach, role model and leader.”

A native of Vernon, Hall earned a bachelor’s degree from Texas Tech University and has spent the past six years as the agriculture teacher at Electra Independent School District. This move keeps him in familiar territory.

“Agriculture has been a big part of my life as long as I can remember,” Hall said. “I grew up in 4-H and FFA. I love working with the youth of today and want to help mold them for tomorrow. I will strive to do the best job I can for our local community.”
