SHERMAN, Texas -- After almost a two-year gap, Grayson County has filled its vacant agriculture and natural resources extension agent post.

Commissioners approved the hire of Marshall Tolleson on Tuesday. Tolleson has experience as a volunteer with the Peace Corps in Cameroon, Africa, helping train local farmers.

"Everything we do has to come from the community -- from committees that we form," he said. "We can't really go off and do anything on our own, so the first thing that I'm going to do is get a really good feel of what the people of Grayson County want."

Tolleson starts his new post on Friday, learning the ropes from his Cooke County counterpart.
