Dr. William Puckett
AUBURN, Ala. -- Dr. William E. Puckett, currently serving as deputy chief for science and technology with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Washington, D.C., has been named to succeed Gary Kobylski as state conservationist for NRCS in Alabama.

As a career conservationist, Puckett has extensive experience working with NRCS at the local, state, regional and national levels. He holds a bachelor's degree in agronomy and a master's in soil physics and mineralogy from Auburn University. He received a doctorate in soil genesis and classification from the University of Florida.

Puckett, who begins his new duties April 13, will be the seventh state conservationist to serve Alabama since the 1935 creation of the Soil Conservation Service, now called NRCS.

Kobylski retired April 3 after 34 years with NRCS.
