Shelley Huguley has been involved in agriculture for the last 30 years. Not only is she married to a farmer, but she has a bachelor's in agricultural communications from Texas Tech University. Her communications career began with the Texas Forest Service West Texas Nursery, Lubbock, where she developed and produced the Windbreak Quarterly, a newspaper about windbreak trees and their benefit to wildlife, production agriculture and livestock operations. She also served as one of the agency's information officers and team leaders during the 1998 wildfire season and later produced the "Firebrands" newsletter, a quarterly publication sent to Volunteer Fire Departments throughout Texas. Her most personal involvement in agriculture came in 1998, when she married her husband Preston Huguley, an Olton, Texas, farmer. As a farmwife, she knows first-hand the ups and downs of farming and the endless decisions producers make each season based on “if” it rains, “if” the drought continues, “if” the market holds. She is the farm bookkeeper and cherishes each season on the farm starting with planting up to harvest, even servicing sprinklers during the summer with the kids. While raising her babies, Shelley freelanced for agricultural companies such as Olton CO-OP Gin, producing the newsletter "Cotton Connections" while also designing marketing materials to promote the gin. Previous to her employment with Farm Press, she had articles published in various agricultural publications including Southwest Farm Press, while also volunteering her marketing and writing skills to non-profit organizations. Shelley and her husband reside in Olton with their three children Breely, Brennon and HalleeKate.
