The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service announced Steve Estes has transferred from his position in Jones County to Taylor County as the county’s agriculture and natural resources agent.
Estes has worked for AgriLife Extension for 18 years. He started his career in Fisher County in 2002 before moving to Jones County.
“The transfer to Taylor County has presented me with a good career opportunity, while also being able to stay in my home area,” said Estes. “I am looking forward to the opportunity to serve new diverse audiences, while also building upon an already strong agricultural program in Taylor County.”
Estes has been recognized for his service over the years. The Texas Association of County Agricultural Agents presented him with a Distinguished Achievement Award for Community Development in 2008 when he worked in Fisher County. Last year, he received the Distinguished Service Award from the National Association of County Agricultural Agents.
He earned both his bachelor’s and master’s from Texas Tech University, Lubbock. His undergraduate degree is in agricultural communications and his graduate degree is in agricultural education.
