By: Norman Martin
Texas Tech's College of Agricultural Sciences & Natural Resources Advisory Board met Thursday (Aug. 23) for a half-day meeting at the McKenzie-Merket Center, focusing on strategic planning. The session included a state-of-the-college and thoughts-for-future presentation by CASNR Dean William Brown. In addition, there was a strategic plan discussion that centered on what are the top three characteristics needed in a new employee; what is CASNR doing well and what changes are needed; what trends should CASNR incorporate into its programs; what areas of research and new technology are needed; and how can CASNR improve in supporting internships. The program ended with an update from Jane Piercy, CASNR's Director of Development and External Relations, followed by departmental meetings with department board members.
Several new members will be joining the board this year. They inlcude Brent Bean of Lubbock; Patrick Brewer of Austin; Ernie Gandy of Olton; Dane Swinburn of Lubbock; Dwain Bunting of Lubbock; Ben Holland of Canyon; Will Leone of Plainview; Kayla Hopkins of Lubbock; Kevin Brinkley of Lubbock; Shawn Wade of Lubbock; Carol Faulkenberry of Amarillo; and Tanya Forester of Lubbock. The board is comprised of members who represent the college's departments, along with the college's development and alumni relations office. While members come from varied backgrounds, all share a desire to serve the college and to further the aims and goals of the departments. This, in turn, is expected to improve the resources available to CASNR and its students.
