Fall 2022

Congratulations, Fall 2022 Graduates!

We’ve created this website to honor and celebrate the success of our graduates. This will be a permanent “yearbook” for Horticulture so you can remember the great times that you have had in Kilgore and the Department of Horticultural Science. Here, you’ll find a message from Dr. Frank Louws, each graduate’s advisor, and a profile page for each graduate.

Celebrate a graduate and join in the fun by posting congratulatory messages to your graduate or your peers on their graduate profile pages. Instructors, co-workers, family members, and friends are all encouraged to post messages and let them know how proud you are of them and share your excitement for their next journey.

Cheers to your success and aspirations!
