           Levens will complete AgriLife Extension’s introductory First Step Training in Lynn and Terry counties from Aug. 12-Sept. 10 prior to assuming her permanent Dawson County duties Sept. 11.

           “We are very pleased to have Courtney join us in this key South Plains district position,” Clawson said. “Because she is actually from Lamesa, she already knows the area and the clientele she will serve, so I expect this will be a very smooth transition for her.

“Courtney presents herself well and exhibits exceptional skills in dealing with the public. She is active in the community and her church by teaching financial management strategies to young couples. I am confident she will fit right into her new role and add much to the already strong AgriLife Extension tradition of top programming in Dawson County.”

           Levens holds an associate degree of science in education from Howard College in Big Spring and graduated Cum Laude from Angelo State University with a bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies with a specialization in mathematics.

               Levens was previously a math teacher with the Lamesa Independent School District.                                                                        -30-
