LLANO – The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service has named Jennifer Reeves their new agent for family and consumer sciences in Llano County.

The announcement was made by County Judge Wayne Brascom and Scott Durham, AgriLife Extension administrator in San Angelo.

Reeves is currently participating in AgriLife Extension’s First Step orientation training in Burnet County and will assume her permanent role in Llano County at the end of May.

“Jennifer exhibits a high degree of excitement and enthusiasm in regards to family and consumer sciences, and we feel she will be an ideal fit for the varied, yet progressive clientele she will encounter in Llano County,” Durham said. “She is a Llano County native who grew up in the county’s 4-H program, so she is not only very familiar with our agency, but also with the area.”

Reeves earned master’s and bachelor’s degrees from Tarleton State University. While attending Tarleton, she served as a graduate teaching assistant in marketing and design, production and graphic design.

Along with assisting professors in the classroom, she was active in school related extracurricular activities, including holding offices in Apha Gamma Delta, serving as president of the College of Agriculture and Human Science Ambassadors, vice president of the Texas Collegiate Agriculture Student Association and holding memberships in the Student Government Association and Student Programming Association.

Reeves fills the position vacated with the retirement of longtime AgriLife Extension agent Marilyn Hale.
