FORT STOCKTON – The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service has announced two agriculture and natural resources personnel additions to its 23-county Far West Texas district.

Kloey Cargill is transferring from Throckmorton County to the Brewster/Jeff Davis counties post effective Nov. 20, said Rebel Royall, AgriLife Extension district administrator at Fort Stockton.

Also, Cody Trimble will become the agency’s new Glasscock County AgriLife Extension agent on Nov. 1, but will complete the agency’s First Step orientation training in Sterling and Reagan counties prior to assuming his permanent post Dec. 1, Royall said.  

“We are very pleased with these appointments,” Royall said. “Kloey already has developed a stellar track record within AgriLife Extension in the year she’s been with us. She’s an Amarillo native who grew up participating in AgriLife Extension’s 4-H youth program.

“Cody has a lifelong association with AgriLife Extension as his dad, Tim Trimble, was a longtime county agent. Cody grew up not only in the 4-H program but exposed to other facets of AgriLife Extension as well, so he has the makings, plus the family background, to become a top agent.

“I have every confidence these two young people will have much to contribute to the strong youth and adult components already in place within these three key counties.”

Cargill earned a bachelor’s degree from Texas Tech University at Lubbock.

Prior to joining AgriLife Extension, she worked as the coordinator of events for the National Reining Horse Association in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. She has also worked as a Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo horse show department assistant and as ranch manager for the Ramp Ranch at Canadian.

Trimble earned an associate degree from Blinn Community College at Brenham, a bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University at College Station and is currently completing studies toward a master’s degree from Texas Tech University at Lubbock.

His work experience includes stints as studio coordinator at Savant Photography, Lubbock; communications intern at the South Plains Food Bank; Texas Tech graduate teaching assistant; and director of marketing and promotions for Davis Mountain Properties, Fort Davis.
