NMSU Extension Appoints New 4-H Extension Agent

LAS CRUCES - Michael Hanagan joined New Mexico State University's Cooperative Extension Service Jan. 1 as Eddy County's new 4-H agent. He will help young people develop leadership skills.

"I'm forward to working with the youth of Eddy County," Hanagan said. He will draw on more than 17 years' experience in direct interaction with students, having served as an agricultural instructor in the Des Moines, Socorro and Artesia school districts.

A native of Washington, D.C. and long-time resident of Santa Fe, Hanagan received a bachelor's degree in agricultural and extension education and a master's degree in education, both from NMSU.

He and his wife, Cody, live in Artesia with their two children, DeShea, 8, and DeLaney, 4.
