Extension Agent

Chester County is happy to announce that we have added a new position to our team of staff members. Earlier this year, Governor Bill Lee approved funding for 32 Extension Agent positions to be filled across the state. These positions were specifically allotted to rural communities, and Chester County was fortunate to be one of the counties able to add an additional staff member. The UT Extension—Chester County office opted to hire a full-time agent to lead the Chester County 4-H Youth Development Program. The candidate selected for the position is Mrs. Madison Edgin.
Madison writes, “Hello everyone! I am Madison Edgin, the new 4-H Extension Agent for Chester County. I will be working with the youth by planning, organizing and instructing 4-H activities and events throughout the county that provide opportunities for the development of life skills. For the past three years I was an agricultural teacher and FFA advisor in Murfreesboro. I love working with youth and providing them with opportunities to develop their potential for leadership and personal growth.
“I am married to my husband Winston and we have a son, Henry. We live in Reagan, where I have lived for the majority of my life. We enjoy traveling together and hanging out on our farm. I am very excited and thankful for this opportunity to interact with the youth in Chester County and the UT Extension office. I look forward to meeting you, your children, and your grandchildren. I would love to meet some of you soon and I am excited about getting your students involved in 4-H.”
Madison has already started meeting students at Chester County Middle School during their monthly 4-H club meetings and looks forward to meeting CCJHS students after the Thanksgiving holiday.
