COLLEGE STATION —Regina Linder recently received the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service’s Superior Service Award in the category of state/district office support.
The award, presented Jan. 8 during the annual Texas A&M AgriLife conference in College Station, is given to staff who demonstrate outstanding performance or who provide exceptional service to AgriLife Extension, an educational outreach agency of the Texas A&M University System.
Linder was the office manager for North Texas AgriLife Extension District IV, whose administrative offices are located at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center, Dallas, and retired August 2012.
Her AgriLife Extension career began in 1981 at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center in Amarillo. She transferred to the Dallas center in August 1999.
Linder worked closely with secretaries, office managers, and AgriLife Extension county agents to coordinate and communicate to make District IV operations efficient, productive, and successful, said Dr. Susan Ballabina, East Region program director, family and consumer sciences, Dallas.
“The way she approached each day was admirable. Her experience and scope of knowledge kept things running smoothly,” Ballabina said. “Not only is Regina known for her expertise and technical abilities, she is also a breath of fresh air. I cannot imagine anyone being more worthy of the Superior Service Award.”
“Regina’s commitment to serve the people of Texas, and her dedication to her quality of work from the district office was excellent,” said Hurley Miller, district AgriLife Extension administrator. “What may not be reflected in the application wass her ability to motivate her co-workers who she supervised, and her dedication to the team.”
