The Imperial Republican
Two Imperial businesses are benefiting by the move to town of Troy and Angie Worth. Troy has been hired as an associate at Veterinary Services, while his wife, Angie, will be a part-time teller at Pinnacle Bank.
Troy learned about Vet Services from a classmate who was from Benkelman. He contacted Lex Thompson and Dave Johnsen, and the three found they fit well together.
Troy was born in Valentine and grew up in Kennesaw. While in high school he worked for a veterinarian, and enjoyed visits to his grandparents’ ranch east of Valentine.
He graduated from Hastings College in 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in biology with a preveterinarian emphasis.
Graduating from Iowa State University May 8 from the College of Veterinary Medicine, Troy and Angie moved to Imperial the next day.
His first day at Vet Services will be June 1.
“It’s wonderful. I’m really excited to work with these men,” he said.
Troy is especially interested in equine and bovine surgery and medicine. He owned two horses while in high school.
Angie grew up in Idalia, Colo., where her mother still farms and ranches. She graduated from Hastings College in 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in business administration with a minor in art.
She worked at Ames Community Bank in Iowa as a personal banker, or one who works with clients in opening deposit accounts such as checking, savings, CDs and money markets.
The couple enjoys being outdoors and walking and biking. Angie also enjoys sewing. Troy said he put all of his hobbies on hold while attending school.
The couple is expecting a baby in September.
