Agriculture Educator Alan Kurtz will be leaving his position tomorrow. Kurtz has worked in both Starke and Pulaski Counties over the past year and a half.

Kurtz talked about his time here.

“Well, it’s been kind of a whirlwind tour for me. I’ve been involved in a lot of different things. I came in as an Agriculture Educator, I did a lot of 4-H work, and ended up being an Agriculture County Extension Director,” he said.

Kurtz came to this area from positions in product development with agriculture chemical companies. We asked him where he will go from here.

“I’m going back to the same thing. I have accepted a position with Agra Quest out of Plymouth.”

In leaving, Kurtz talked about the enjoyable time he had with the people he worked with in both counties.

“The best thing about a position like this is all the people you get to meet and get to work with.”
