Extension Service taps Nusser for program director post

Danny Nusser will be getting back to his roots Feb. 1, but on a much larger scale.

 

He will step into the position now held by Galen Chandler, who is retiring from the job of Texas A&M Extension Service’s North Region Program Director of agriculture, natural resources and 4-H and youth development.

“I’ll be going from basically an administrative role, where I hire and supervise county agents, to a programing role for adult and youth programs,” Nusser said.

But Nusser will move from overseeing agents in 22 counties in the Texas Panhandle as district administrator to working with them in 60 counties from the Panhandle to the South Plains and Rolling Plains.

“We look forward to his transition into the regional program director position and the interaction that will take place to effectively address and identify issues and needs with program planning, development, delivery and education,” said Pete Gibbs, Extension’s associate director for state programs in College Station.

Nusser started working for Extension in 1984 and served as a county agent in Hale, Carson, Gray and Randall counties.

“One of the things about spending all that time as an ag agent working with producers and kids and then going into administration, you kind of get away from the programs so I’m excited,” he said. “It will be a little more focused,”

He will continue to be based in the AgriLife Research and Extension Center at 6500 W. Amarillo Blvd. in Amarillo.
