The announcement was made by Floyd County Judge Penny Golightly and Michael Clawson, AgriLife Extension district administrator at Lubbock.

Kress will complete AgriLife Extension’s First Step Training, an orientation program for new agents, in Lamb County prior to assuming her permanent assignment in Floyd County on July 18.

“Amy will fit well in Floyd County,” Clawson said. “She has a love for our region and an obvious passion for working with people. She also has an appreciation for agriculture, which should serve her well in this strongly agricultural county. I feel that her interests in health and wellness issues will be of great benefit to youth and adult audiences in Floyd County. Amy is extremely excited about the opportunities she will have to make a positive impact on families in the county.”

Kress is from Garland and is a May graduate of Texas Tech University, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in agricultural communications with a minor in natural resource management.

Her work experience includes serving as a nursery worker at Wolfforth United Methodist Church and as a teacher’s assistant at Westminster Presbyterian Preschool in Lubbock. She has also worked as an intern for the Texas Beef Council and the State Fair of Texas in Dallas.
