Overton County is getting an extra 4-H agent.
According to Christiana Swallows, the co-director of the county’s UT Agricultural Extension office, said the local program has grown in recent years.
“The 4-H program has grown to beyond what one agent can handle in a working 40 to 60 plus hours or more weekly since Ms. Nicole (Marrero, the agent overseeing Overton’s 4-H program) has joined the UT Extension Overton team,” Swallows said. “While many youth have taken advantage of the beyond school hours, there are many others who could take advantage of many programs.”
Marrero said she is excited about having someone to share the workload.
