The Office of Planning and Assessment (OPA) has the opportunity to work with Texas
Tech staff across campus. These staff members go above and beyond their jobs on a
regular basis and so we thought it would be great to get to know them a little better.
We found these Stars in the College of Agriculture Science and Natural Resources.
Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics
Hometown or where you tell people you’re from? I grew up in Tulia, TX, in a great farming community.
Department of Animal and Food Sciences
Hometown or where you tell people you’re from? Portland, Oregon (I’m an Air Force retiree. Even though I have lived in Lubbock
for 16 years, I don’t have the Texas accent, so people still ask “where are you from?”)
In a sentence or two, describe your job: I work for the department chair and I guess you could say I am the “go to”person
in the department for most things that need resolving. I love my job because I do
a variety of things on a daily basis.
Department of Natural Resources Management
Hometown or where you tell people you’re from? Middlefield, Massachusetts
Department of Plant and Soil Science
Hometown or where you tell people you’re from? My father was in the military for 20 years; so, I was born in California. But, my parents and family are from Levelland, TX (that is home).
In a sentence or two, describe your job: I am the Administrative Business Assistant for the Department of Plant and Soil Science.
Basically, I provide support for the department chair in whatever capacity is necessary.
