Eastland County Farm Service Agency has a new employee.
Kathy Bailes will be working in our office for the next several months as a County Operations Trainee (COT). The COT program is a management training program that employees must complete before they are eligible to manage an FSA county office. Once Kathy completes the training program, she will be certified to become a County Executive Director and manage her own FSA office in another county within Texas.
Previously, Kathy served in the Throckmorton County FSA office as a Program Technician for 20 years, and was later a Farm Loan Officer in Haskell County for five years. Most recently, Kathy was Branch Manager for First State Bank in Throckmorton and Woodson.
Before her career with FSA, Kathy earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture Education from Texas A&M.
Kathy and her husband live in Throckmorton.
Please help us welcome Kathy when you come by the office.
