Megan Kunkel Glidden has been assigned the position of Family and Community Health Extension Agent for Aransas County. She is employed by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, as has been on the job since Jan. 14.
After graduating from Hondo High School, Glidden attended Schreiner University where she received her Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. She then attended Lamar University where she earned her Master’s in Teacher Leadership.
“I come to Aransas County from Knippa Independent School District KISD, the highest performing district in the state of Texas,” she said.
She was part of the team that established KISD as an early college high school. This year the district’s students and teachers accomplished a state rating of “A” and an overall 97 percent accountability score.
“As district counselor I feel very proud of the role I played in helping facilitate this achievement,” said Glidden.
In her free time she enjoys spending time with family, her niece and nephew, and her fur babies - Fred and Whip.
“My husband, Travis, and I are big foodies and enjoy trying new places to eat and finding a porch to watch the sunset over the water. We love hearing your recommendations,” she said.
“I look forward to getting to know the people of Aransas County Community. Please feel free to drop by and say hello anytime.”
