Michael Clawson, AgriLife Extension district administrator at Lubbock, said both women have excellent credentials within the agency.

“Audra and Amy are young agents with boundless energy and positive new ideas I’m sure they will transfer to their new youth-oriented assignments,” Clawson said. “Both agents have experience with youth development programming in their current positions, so transitioning to their new assignments should be seamless. I’m confident they will add to the already strong 4-H and youth development programs these two counties enjoy.”

Graves has worked in Mitchell County since 2013.  She earned a master of professional studies degree in Homeland Security from Pennsylvania State University and a bachelor’s from Texas Tech University in agricultural communications.

Kress has been in Floyd County since 2013. She earned a bachelor’s degree in agricultural communications from Texas Tech and is scheduled to graduate in December from the university with a master’s degree in agricultural education.
