UVALDE — Megan Logan has accepted the position of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service program specialist in 4-H and youth development for District 10, said Dr. Chris Boleman, 4-H and Youth Development Program director, College Station.
Logan, who begins her new position Sept. 9, will work from the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center in Uvalde.
“Megan has been the county AgriLife Extension agent for 4-H and youth development in Erath County for the last five years,” Boleman said. “In this role, and as a proud former 4-H’er from Bexar County, she has demonstrated excellence in 4-H programming and has served in several critical leadership roles in the 4-H and Youth Development Program. She brings a great deal of passion, energy, and enthusiasm to the program.”
Logan will provide direction to the District 10 4-H program by supporting AgriLife Extension county agents and volunteer leaders, said Donaldo “Donnie” Montemayor, AgriLife Extension interim district administrator, Corpus Christi. She also will assist in providing district and county 4-H opportunities for AgriLife Extension clientele in District 10.
“Megan will provide leadership to various District 10 committees, contests, events, and learning opportunities for youth and adult volunteers,” Montemayor said. “She will work with me as the interim district administrator to provide assistance to AgriLife Extension professionals in programing and interpretation to our state administration, as well as local and state funding partners.
“We look forward to working with Megan in her new appointment. I know the agents and support staff at the District 10 office will also be eager to have her onboard.”
Logan has a bachelor’s degree in agricultural services and development from Tarleton State University and plans to begin work on her master’s degree in the fall.
She is a member of the Texas County Agricultural Agents Association and the Texas Association of Extension 4-H Agents and has served as chair of the District 8 dairy, entomology and mohair committees, plus as a District 8 4-H Council advisor. Additionally, she has also served on the District’s fashion show, rifle, Holiday Classic, and Consumer Decision Making committees.
“I’m excited to return to District 10 which is my home district, and to work with the agents, 4-H youth and 4-H families there,” Logan said. “I’d like to start District 10 Facebook and Twitter accounts so people can see what’s happening in the district, plus work on increasing the scope and participation in some project and contest areas within the district.”
The Texas 4-H program is administered by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, an educational outreach agency of the Texas A&M University System.
