Advisor Comments (John Dole):
From the time Nathan arrived at NC State for his MS until finishing his PhD, he has made the most of graduate school. He has strived to learn, to grow and to become skilled in teaching, research and extension. His research projects addressed some of the most important issues in floriculture and are resulting in many publications. He has already developed his own course with Julie Sherk and received teaching evaluations typical of an established instructor. He relates well to the industry, listens to their issues and desires to help them. And he has done all of this while supporting his fellow students and the department. I am proud to have had Nathan as one of my graduate students and look forward to seeing what else he will do in the future.

Nathan, it has been great getting to know you the past few years. I look forward to watching you succeed in future endeavors!
Nathan – you were always one of my role models in the Hort department. I knew I wanted to go to grad school whenever I worked in the grad lounge or attended PAX meetings. Congratulations Dr. Jahnke!
