Hall Named to Texas A&M PostSource: Texas A&M University

Last week, Texas A&M University announced the appointment of Charlie Hall as holder of the Ellen and Jim Ellison Chair in International Floriculture at the university’s department of horticultural sciences. Hall, professor of agricultural economics at the University of Tennessee, was previously a Texas Cooperative Extension specialist.

The international floriculture chair, created in 2004, aims at ensuring that floriculture and greenhouse research and education will be a permanent part of the horticulture program within the Texas A&M University system.

Hall is a self-proclaimed “hybrid” with degrees in both agricultural economics and horticulture. Having grown up in the plant industry, he is admittedly passionate about the industry. “I look forward to challenges associated with this chair for several reasons, but mainly because I believe it provides an opportunity to make a difference in the livelihood of floricultural firms not only in Texas but domestically and abroad,” Hall stated.
