ELDORADO – Cody Bridges has been named the new Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service agriculture and natural resources agent for Schleicher County, according to an announcement made by Schleicher County judge Charlie Bradley and Scott Durham, AgriLife Extension administrator at San Angelo.
Bridges will complete AgriLife Extension’s First Step orientation training in Runnels County beginning April 15, prior to starting his permanent assignment in Schleicher County on May 15.
“We are very pleased to have Cody join us here in the West Central District,” Durham said. “He was raised in this area, so he knows the country. He was also very active in the 4-H and FFA youth programs while growing up and so has a good background in the workings of AgriLife Extension’s 4-H youth component. He’s a very personable young man, and I predict he will make a fine fit not only in Schleicher County, but within the 23-county district as well.”
Bridges earned a bachelor’s degree in animal science with a minor in range and wildlife management from Angelo State University in 2012. He also obtained an associates degree in golf course and landscape technology in 2007 from Western Texas College.
Along with a background in agriculture, Bridges past work experience includes golf course management, feed store sales and warehouse maintenance and retail western wear sales. He has also performed community volunteer work with multiple livestock shows including the San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo and the stock shows in Coke and Crane counties.
