SAN ANGELO – The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service has announced three new hires within the agency’s 23-county West Central District, the district’s administrator said.

Dr. Whitney Whitworth, Llano County; Staci Winders, Nolan County; and Kailey Miller, San Saba County will join their respective AgriLife Extension offices as family and community health agents.

Marty Gibbs, AgriLife Extension administrator at San Angelo, said all will start Aug. 1, but will complete the agency’s First Step orientation in another county before assuming their permanent assignments.

“We are very pleased to have these ladies join our ranks here in the West Central District,” Gibbs said. “They bring an extensive, yet varied, skill set not only to their respective counties, but to the district and agency as a whole.”

Miller earned a bachelor’s degree from Tarleton State University, Stephenville, with an emphasis on agricultural services and development. She completed an AgriLife Extension internship in Eastland County and served as a YMCA camp counselor at Cedar Park.
