Advisor Comments (Craig Yencho):

Adam, Congratulations on completing your MS in Horticultural Science with an emphasis in Plant Breeding and Genetics. I have had the great pleasure of watching you mature and grow professionally and scientifically from your Freshman year at NC State through your MS with the sweetpotato and potato breeding teams.  Congratulations on achieving this milestone.  I am exceptionally proud of your accomplishments and I look forward to following your career as you begin your PhD at Clemson.  I know you will excel at Clemson like you have done here at State, this is a certainty, though I’m not sure the color orange will suit you well ;-)!

Best wishes for the future. Stay in touch…and…, Go Pack!!


Lee Ivy (Hort Teaching Faculty):
