Local News

Texas A&M Agri-Llife Extension is inviting residents to take advantage of the different programs they offer.

For more than 100 years, the Texas A&M extension has been working to educate south Texans on a variety of topics. The agency’s educational process is based on research focused on local issues and needs. Whether it’s diabetes management or learning different ways to eat healthy on a budget, they say there is a program for everyone.

Andrea Valdez, Agri-Life Extension Agent said, “Our job is to educate the community to live happier and healthier lives. We’ve been in this county for 100 years. So, we are a mainstay and we welcome everyone to join out program. Most of them are free. Some of them do have a charge but that’s very rare.”
