Skaggs trains for DHS
Amber (Harriman) Skaggs, of Keyes has been selected to fill the slot at the local Department of Human Services office with the retirement of Nancy Kline in August.
Skaggs, the daughter of Mitch and Lorrie Harriman, of Keyes, is a recent graduate of SWOSU, with a degree in Business management and will be when trained, the Cimarron County Social Services Specialist.
Asked how she happened to decide to become an employee of the DHS, Skaggs shrugged and replied, “I was looking for a job, and I think it's good that I'll be able to help people of the county since I am from here.
Skaggs, who studies each day on-line, will attend a DHS academy on Nov. 29-Dec. 10 and will then be able to begin serving her Cimarron County customers.
In the meantime experienced workers from the Guymon office, will open the office in Boise City on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Asked why as a 2003 graduate from SWOSU in Weatherford she decided to return to Cimarron County, Skaggs said, “I have family here and wanted their help in raising my kids, Caden, 20 months and Makynna, seven months. Besides this is a great place to raise kids.”
“I want everyone to know what services we offer; because we are wanting to increase our case load with those in the county who qualify,” Skaggs explained.
