ULSWCD WELCOMES KATY MEADOR TO OUR STAFF
May 2017: Upper Llanos Soil and Water Conservation District (ULSWCD) welcomes Katy Meador to our staff. Katy will serve as part-time employee in the office, and Wanda Blackburn, who has worked at ULSWCD for 16 years, will continue as the bookkeeper and webmaster, working primarily off-site.
Katy moved to Kimble county when she was five years old and grew up in London. She is married to Charlie Meador and they enjoy being grandparents of seven-year-old Logan and five-year-old Emma.
She attended Junction High School, San Antonio College and Schreiner University in Kerrville. Katy was formerly the Human Resources Manager of Lowe’s Home Improvement of Kerrville and Assistant Human Resources Director for Hill Country Community MHDD Centers of Kerrville. She and Charlie have lived continually in Junction, except for three years when she was transferred with Lowe’s to Los Alamos, NM, but they were glad to return to their family and friends in Kimble county.
As ULSWCD’s newest employee, Katy joins the District’s partnership with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), serving Kimble county landowners with environmental and natural resource concerns.
For assistance in natural resource conservation, land restoration or range and wildlife habitat management, contact the ULSWCD or NRCS at 325-446-2722, or stop by the office at 902 College Street in Junction.
OBSERVANCE OF NATIONAL SOIL STEWARDSHIP WEEK,
PROCLAIMED BY KIMBLE COUNTY JUDGE
AND COMMISSIONERS' COURT
Stewardship Week is one of the world’s largest conservation-related observances. At the request of ULSWCD, the Kimble County Judge and Commissioners' Court proclaimed the first week in May as Soil Stewardship Week, to coincide with state and national dates.
The Stewardship concept involves personal and social responsibility, including a duty to learn about and improve natural resources as we use them wisely, leaving a legacy for future generations.
The observance of Stewardship Week helps remind us of the power of each person to conserve natural resources and improve the world. Working together with the local conservation district, that power is multiplied and continues to grow.
ULSWCD is a strong supporter of conservation practices in Kimble county and through its partnership with the federal Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) it provides technical assistance to landowners wishing to conserve and improve their land and water resources.
