He graduated from NC State with a bachelor’s degree in Crop Science, with an emphasis on turfgrass science and a Masters in Entomology, both his education and lifelong experience in the industry will be a great addition to Prime Source. “I can remember going with my dad to work on Saturdays when I was about 8 to Bayer in Clayton, North Carolina, and helping him weigh sand for different experiments.
