Marty Parish joins NCSU as manager of the Lake Wheeler Field Lab

January 7, 2016

This week Marty Parish joins NCSU as the manager of the Lake Wheeler Field Lab in Raleigh. 

Marty originally graduated from NC State with a degree in psychology, but the talent and expertise he demonstrated working at North Carolina golf courses as an undergraduate prompted his superintendent to urge him to go for a degree in turfgrass science. That he eventually did, at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, and is now back home on Wolfpack soil. That suits him just fine.

"I'm excited to be a part of the turfgrass program here at NCSU. It is a very great feeling to be associated with such fantastic faculty/staff, and I want to give them a top notch  field lab and all the support they need."

Welcome, Marty!
