Texas Tech University announced today (Nov. 20) the establishment of the J.A. Love Endowed Chair for Sustainable Agriculture in the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. Officials also introduced Tom Thompson, a nationally-recognized agricultural researcher and Texas Tech administrator, as the first chair recipient.
“I’m humbled by this honor,” said Thompson, who currently serves as chairman of Tech’s Department of Plant and Soil Science. “Making agriculture on the southern High Plains more sustainable is a huge challenge, and I hope that the funds provided through this endowed chair will be a catalyst for greater efforts toward this goal.”
