Managing Farm and Ranch Employees Lectureship
Last week, the King Ranch® Institute for Ranch Management hosted a lectureship on Managing Farm and Ranch Employees in Kingsville attracting more than 47 participants from 17 states. This lectureship focused on managing people in the ranching business, teaching participants in the areas of leadership, supervision, coaching and hiring. Instructed by Senior Consultant of Dairy Strategies, LLC., and Professor Emeritus of Cornell University Dr. Bob Milligan, the event helped build the skill-set of ranch managers so they can plan for, understand, and successfully lead current and future employees of the ranch. Also in attendance at this event were the participants of the KRIRM Excellence in Ag Leadership Program. The lectureship is part of a one-year leadership training for 12 ranching professionals.
Staff Council Luncheon
"One of my favorite events of the fall semester is our annual Staff Council Welcome Back Luncheon, which was held this week. This year’s luncheon was a huge success and I enjoyed visiting with everyone. The commitment of our staff to our students and institution is critical to the success of our university, and I appreciate the hard work and dedication our staff puts in every day," President Dr. Steven Tallant said.
Dr. Eliseo "Cheo" Torres' presentation on "Curanderismo" and "Herbal Remedies" took place Thursday, Sept. 27, at the Javelina Student Engagement Center at 6 p.m. in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
Dr. Torres is a former Texas A&M-Kingsville professor and administrator and a national expert in the field of faith healing. He is currently the Vice President for Student Affairs at the University of New Mexico.
