WATER VALLEY–The interview process got underway last week for a new position the Mississippi State University Extension Service (MSU-ES) has added in Yalobusha County.
Yalobusha was one of four counties selected across the state by the Extension Service to add a new county agent to work in community development programming. The new agent will work alongside existing Extension Service staff members in the Coffeeville office.
Two candidates were interviewed at the Multi-purpose Building in Coffeeville last Tuesday, with several county officials attending. District Three Supervisor Lee McMinn told the Herald he attended the interviews along with District 1 Supervisor Tommy Vaughn, Chancery Clerk Amy McMinn, and the county’s economic development director, Bob Tyler.
“We were asked to observe the interviews and offer input,” McMinn told the Herald.
The agency opened the position and started taking applications for the positions in all four counties back in September. The position will be funded through the Extension Service.
