The search goes on for a new Hall County extension agent.
“We made an offer after interviewing several candidates in September. The offer was declined,” said Bobby Smith, Northeast Georgia extension director, in an email Thursday, Oct. 10.
“We still have the position open and hope to hold another round of interviews early next month.”
The job has been open since April 12, when the previous county agent, Joshua Presley, resigned from his post for another job. Presley had held the job since June 2018.
The county agent works to develop programs in agriculture, horticulture and natural resources "to a wide variety of audiences utilizing multiple teaching methods," according to the University of Georgia, which runs the state's Cooperative Extension program.
