New faces have made their way into the DeWitt County Extension Office. Quinn Berckenhoff was hired as the county’s assistant agent, while Kyla Gladson is a summer intern. Berckenhoff will be leading the county’s 4-H program and assisting county agent Anthony Netardus. Gladson is learning each facet of the county’s extension operations, as she prepares for her final semester of college.

A 2014 graduate of Hallettsville High School, Berckenhoff made his way to Tarleton State University in Stephenville, where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in animal science last December. He has spent his entire life farming, which helped attract him to Texas A&M’s Agrilife Extension field.

Last summer, he was an intern back home in Lavaca County.

“It opened me up to everything,” Berckenhoff recalled. “I could see myself doing this. That’s why I chose this path. I had spent a little bit of time in this office [Cuero] during my internship. I know the area pretty well.”
