From the Editor

I’ve heard it said that Texas A&M was founded in 1876 and has been under construction ever since. For a school so steeped in time honored traditions, we sure do change a lot. While it seems A&M has been changing faster than ever in recent years, there are things that remain the same. Kyle Field is going through its newest evolution, and the search for a new Reveille begins, but the legacy Aggies leave on the world is an undeniable constant.
This issue of the AgriLeader is about the changing faces of both agriculture and Texas A&M. As a staff we wanted to give the new generation of Aggies in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences a sense of who we are and where we come from, with a glimpse of where we’re going.
Aggie legends like Norman Borlaug have given A&M a strong academic foundation. New initiatives like One Health are giving Aggies a chance to better the world. Student athletes like Josh Lambo are bringing A&M attention on the national stage, and Texas A&M Youth Camps are impacting children in communities all over Texas. We hope to build on the legacy left to us while leaving our own mark on the future.
I was so lucky to have such a wonderful, talented staff. I want to thank them for all of their hard work and for putting out such a great magazine. I also want to thank David Walther and Dr. Tracy Rutherford for all of their guidance and help. This issue of the AgriLeader is one that we can all be proud of.
