LUFKIN – Last Friday, the Deep East Texas Council of Governments (DETCOG) and Economic Development District announced Tyler County native Andrew Harmon to serve as the new Assistant Executive Director.

Harmon will work under DETCOG’s executive director Lonnie Hunt and said “I’m thrilled to announce my new role as the Assistant Executive Director…it’s an honor to have been selected, and I’m blessed to be in a position to serve my community in this capacity.”

Harmon, who graduated Colmesneil High School, earned college degrees at the University of Texas in Austin, and dating back to his high school career, has worked in service-based positions within the community and in governmental entities, having worked for the county as an intern.

He also worked as a journalist, having written for the Tyler County Booster during his high school days as a stringer reporter and later as part of an internship while obtaining his master’s degree.

He has been employed by the state’s General Land Office since graduating with his master’s degree from UT.

“Although I’ll miss my time at the GLO, I’m proud of the direction the agency is heading under Commissioner Dawn Buckingham’s leadership,” he said.

Harmon added that he is “grateful for the relationships I formed during my time at the GLO, and I’m excited to continue working with many familiar faces in this new capacity.”
