Lecturer,  Department of Horticultural Sciences, NCSU

The courses I teach allow me to interact with aspiring horticulturists. Their interests are broad but often revolve around some type of plant propagation. As an educator trying to combine science with practical applications, an experience at an IPPS meeting can greatly influence their direction in the green industry. Membership in this organization is seen by them as important and enjoyable.
