Hays joins Noble Research Institute's Agricultural Division
ARDMORE, Okla. — Noble Research Institute has selected Amy E. Hays as the educational services manager in the Agricultural Division.
As educational services manager, Hays will provide support and development to the Agricultural Division for educational programming, producer outreach and community education. She will also redesign how the division's educational services are offered and develop innovative ways to connect with producers.
"The Noble Research Institute is unique because it has embraced education as a culture not a product," Hays said. "Not many people see education as part of their purpose. I look forward to integrating a larger educational role into the existing efforts to enhance the support to agricultural producers."
Hays received her bachelor's degree in wildlife and fisheries sciences and her master's degree in rangeland ecology and management, both from Texas A&M University. Before coming to the Noble Research Institute, she had worked as an emerging technologies specialist at the Texas A&M Institute of Renewable Natural Resources since its inception in 2006. Hays previously worked as a Texas AgriLife Extension Service program specialist.
"Amy brings a wealth of educational programming expertise," said Hugh Aljoe, Noble Research Institute producer relations manager. "She has established herself as a leader in using today's digital technologies to provide information to producers. Hays' unique skill set will provide immediate direction to our producer education and outreach program."
Hays is from Gatesville, Texas. She and her husband, Brian, have three children.
