District 10 is located in Uvalde County, in the City of Uvalde is headquarters to twenty-one counties in the Southwest Texas area.
Working hand-in-hand with its Texas A&M System partners, the state legislature, and the communities it serves, the mission of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service to serve Texans through community-based education has remained unchanged for almost a century.
With a vast network of 250 county Extension offices and some 900 professional educators, the expertise provided by AgriLife Extension is available to every resident in every Texas county. But Extension educators are well-aware that a program offered in Dallas might not be relevant in the Rio Grande Valley. AgriLife Extension custom-designs its programs to different areas of the state, significantly depending on residents for input and program delivery.
County extension agents also conduct result demonstrations and applied research — one of the most visible and effective educational tools that agents use to transfer research based technology in agriculture to producers and the public. Extension specialists and agents, work with development groups and others, sharing expertise and experiences to plan, implement, evaluate, analyze, publish and distribute result demonstrations and applied research.
The mission of AgriLife Extension is a seemingly simple.
- Help Texans better their lives
- Through the application of science-based knowledge, we create high-quality, relevant continuing education that encourages lasting and effective change
- We provide programs, tools, and resources —local and statewide — that teach people how to improve agriculture and food production, advance health practices, protect the environment, strengthen our communities, and enrich youth.
