Angela Olige

As Assistant Commissioner for the Texas Department of Agriculture, Angela Olige is part of Commissioner Miller’s executive team. She oversees the Food and Nutrition Division and has administrative oversight for the operations, policy development, strategic planning and financial management of 12 federal nutrition programs with a budget of more than $2.8 billion in Texas. These programs have an impact on the state’s public, private-nonprofit and charter schools as well as numerous residential child care institutions, food banks, and other community and faith-based organizations. This position affords Angela the opportunity to engage in the endeavors she finds most rewarding — instituting and managing the kinds of effective change and transitions that not only help those in need but also lead people to discover their hidden talents, abilities and skills.

Angela received her Bachelor of Science in Accounting from the University of Houston-Clear Lake Angela first ventured into the public sector at the local level in 1984. She honed her accounting and managerial skills in accounting offices of Texas school districts in La Marque and Houston adding food and nutrition to the mix while working in Las Vegas, Nevada for the Clark County School District. Angela started her state service in 2005 with the Texas Department of Agriculture.

Angela resides in Georgetown, Texas. She is the proud wife of Rick Olige, a distinguished army veteran and ministering elder and has been blessed to mother three daughters and two sons. She is an extremely proud grandmother of five grandsons and five granddaughters. Angela finds joy in children’s laughter, the chime of a grandfather clock, martial arts movies, and a good book. She utilizes available time on the things she values most — treasuring her husband, mentoring women, inspiring others, caring for her grandchildren, spending time with her extended family, and serving as Ministering Elder at Celebration Church.
