Campus Spotlight: College of Ag Super Heroes

The MRTF’s support of the William H. Daniel Turfgrass Research and Diagnostic Center really pays off. Congrats to Glenn and Ben for this awesome recognition of all their hard work!


Dear College of Agriculture Colleagues,

This week’s College of Ag Super Heroes are Glenn Hardebeck, turfgrass research center manager, and Benjamin Royal, turfgrass research facility technician. Both work at the William H. Daniel Turfgrass Research and Diagnostic Center and are members of the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture.

Glenn and Ben go above and beyond when it comes to working with those hosting events at the center, located on Cherry Lane just off campus. In addition to ensuring the facilities are top notch, they also provide equipment for hands-on demonstrations and contribute their knowledge on relevant topics.

A faculty member stated, “Without the cooperation of Glenn and Ben, the programs could not have been as successful as they were. You can’t go wrong working with a team of individuals who are constantly asking, ‘What do you need?’”

College of Ag Super Heroes are individuals who are doing great things for the college in ways that oftentimes go unrecognized. During my time as interim dean, I’ll be sending out periodic emails highlighting some of these individuals.

Thank you, Glenn and Ben, for your spirit of collaboration to help others within the college host successful programs at your facilities.

Dr. Ken Foster, PhD

Interim Dean | College of Agriculture
