PAINT ROCK – Brady Rose Evans will become the new Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service agent for agriculture and natural resources in Concho County effective Sept. 1, said County Judge Allen Amos and Scott Durham, AgriLife Extension district administrator in San Angelo.

Evans will be headquartered in the AgriLife Extension office in the Concho County Extension Annex in the Campbell Building in Paint Rock. She will be responsible for all of AgriLife Extension’s agricultural and natural resource-related endeavors in the county, Durham said.

“Brady is no stranger to agriculture or West Texas,” Durham said. “She’s also no stranger to our agency. While growing up, she was active in both the 4-H youth program and FFA. And most recently, she served as the AgriLife Extension agent in Foard County.

“I’m confident Brady’s obvious energy, creativity and self-starting nature will serve her well in her new appointment.”

Evans holds an associate of arts degree from Western Texas College at Snyder and a bachelor of science degree with an agricultural and consumer science emphasis in agriculture Extension and industry from Tarleton State University, Stephenville. She was recently accepted into the master’s program at Texas A&M University-Kingsville.

Her background information states that she has spent most of her formative years in the agriculture industry as her father owns a cotton gin in Snyder and her mother previously owned a feed store. She raised goats and sheep for more than 10 years as an active 4-H’er and member of the Ira FFA throughout school. She started in 4-H in Runnels County and was also involved in the program while living in Lynn and Scurry counties.
