FLORESVILLE -- After a 3-1/2 year stint as Texas AgriLife Extension Service agent for Wilson County, Dennis Hale is bidding his role farewell. Hale retired from the Texas AgriLife Extension Service Aug. 31, after 32 years of service.

Hale, 55, grew up in the Corpus Christi area. He graduated from Texas A&I University in Kingsville.

He started his career as an assistant agent in Victoria and later assumed the head position in Goliad, Karnes, and Wilson counties -- serving the last 16 years in the latter two.

In 2011, Hale was honored with the Outstanding Beef County Extension Agent award, for his 13 years of leadership in beef cattle programs in Karnes and Wilson counties.

Hale just completed a three-year forage study of Wilson and Karnes counties, including data on the worst drought South Texas has ever experienced.

During the Aug. 5 Wilson County 4-H Achievement Night banquet, Hale was honored with an Outstanding Service Award for the work he has done with the youth of the county.

Joining Hale for his retirement party Aug. 29 in the AgriLife Extension Office were several county officials; Marvin Ensor, regional program director, Texas AgriLife Extension; and former county agent Charles Pfluger Jr. Also attending were other well-wishers who have worked with him through the years.

Hale worked with Pfluger for 15 years prior to Pfluger’s retirement in 2008.

Hale is married to Jenny. Together, they have two sons, Clint and Cody, and two grandchildren. He plans to enjoy spending more time with his family and playing golf.
