Molly Forman, a Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service family and community health agent for Briscoe and Hall counties for the past 10 years, was recognized with the agency’s Superior Service Award for a county agent at the annual Texas A&M AgriLife conference in College Station.
Forman runs a well-rounded educational program, effectively managing her time to maximize impacts for both youth and adults, her nomination stated. Serving two counties, she continues to be a critical resource to the citizens of both.
Some of her most significant programmatic efforts involve the health and wellness programs in which she involved her local Family and Community Health Program Area Committees in both counties to determine a plan of action, the nominated stated. These action plans address the needs of all citizens, from senior citizens to 4-H Clover Kids, and from affluent citizens to those struggling with poverty.
