Manager of the Greenhouse, Department of Agronomy and Horticulture, IANR
The Board of Regents is pleased to present a KUDOS award to Stacy Adams, Manager of the Greenhouse for the Department of Agronomy and Horticulture in the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Stacy’s responsibilities are vast and many, including the operations management of horticulture research and teaching greenhouses, and the ornamental, vegetable and small fruits field laboratories at UNL.
Stacy is indeed an expert in greenhouse management and willingly shares his knowledge with his peers and the public. Numerous Nebraska schools have consulted him in design and construction of teaching greenhouse facilities. But in addition to his regular responsibilities he is cooperating in a research project using alternative energy sources to heat and cool greenhouses, and recently presented a paper on the subject at a High Tunnel Greenhouse Program in Missouri.
Stacy inspires teamwork and is always willing to pitch in for the good of the department. He has served on many departmental committees and often helps in the classroom and in recruitment activities. In fact, this semester Stacy agreed to teach the Greenhouse Management course, a testament to his willingness to go above and beyond the call.
He works well with students and student clubs, particularly the Student Horticulture Club. He helps researchers identify and create specific growing conditions for their plants. And he always finds appropriate space for critical research projects.
Stacy’s guests today are: Mark Lagrimini, Department Head for Agronomy and Horticulture; Sam Shafer, Tracy’s supervisor; his wife, Sandra Adams; his daughters, Morgan, Ashley and Gracelyn; and his sons, Taylor, Keegan, Turner and Holden. Please join me in thanking Stacy for his contributions and gifts to agronomy and horticulture at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
