Nine growers have each received a continuing education Certificate in Applied Horticultural Business Management from Texas A&M University after completing the one-year Executive Academy for Growth & Leadership (EAGL) program. The EAGL program is a public-private partnership specializing in strategic business skills for commercial horticulture. It is a personalized multi-module curriculum designed to improve the competitive position and profitability of the participants’ companies. Prior to graduation, the executive students presented their capstone projects (complete strategic plans for each of their businesses) to an evaluation panel of accomplished executives from other industries who shared insights on each student’s business strategy, operational excellence and presentation style. StandPoint and Texas A&M University congratulate the Alpha class of the EAGL program: Bryan Abramowki, Rockwell Farms; Dan Batson, GreenForest Nursery; Tom Demaline, Willoway Nursery; Randy Gilde, Delray Plants; Kelly Lewis, Ruppert Nurseries; Kevin Norris, Landmark Nurseries; Ed Overdevest, Overdevest Nurseries; Jason Roseman, Rockwell Farms; Mark Sellew, Prides Corner Farms. The Beta class is underway, and 2015 Gamma EAGL class applications will open in June 2014. For more information, visit www.eaglpro.com
