Burris named new AgriLife Extension agent for Coleman County
Christin Burris will become the new Texas AgriLife Extension Service family and consumer sciences agent for Coleman County effective Jan. 1, according to a recent announcement by Coleman County Judge Jimmie Hobbs and Scott Durham, AgriLife Extension administrator at San Angelo.
"We are very proud to have this outstanding new agent begin her AgriLife Extension career with us here in the West Central District," Durham said. "I feel strongly that her extensive people skills and new ideas will be real assets to this key county and to our entire 23-county district."
Burris earned a bachelor of science degree in human development and family studies earlier this month from Texas Tech University where she was on the dean's honor list. She also holds an associate of science degree from Howard College in Big Spring.
Prior to accepting her new AgriLife Extension position, Burris was a preschool teacher at Lubbock's First Baptist Church Child Development Center. She also has experience in retail sales, restaurant operation and summer camp counseling.
Burris was very active in campus activities during her academic career. Her activities included being a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, listed among Who's Who Among College Students, and holding memberships in the American Society of Interior Design and the Howard College Diplomats. She also served as a Habitat for Humanity intern in 2007.
Burris fills the position vacated by Deborah Hailey who transferred to Jones County on April 14.
