Institute of Applied Agriculture Celebrates 50 Years

On Saturday May 14 2016, the University of Maryland Institute of Applied Agriculture celebrated 50 years of growing careers in agriculture with its 50th Anniversary Gala at the University of Maryland Marriott Hotel and Conference Center. Tony Pagnotti had the welcoming remarks and  was the nights emcee. Current students, alumni and friends of the IAA were encouraged by the remarks from Dr. Craig Beyrouty, the dean of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources and from Gloria Hyman, director of the IAA, who gave the toast for the 'Tute.  
Next up was Dr. Kevin Matthias, who then reflected on the 50 years of the Institute of Applied Agriculture and the student experience at the IAA.
Attendees had the opportunity to bid on dozens of silent auction items, many of which were donated by IAA students and alumni.
The MTC is a proud sponsor of the IAA 50th Anniversary Gala and congratulates IAA for its support of the turf industry.
