Tommy Hines, senior research specialist at the Eastern Shore AREC, has been selected as the November Employee of the Month.
Tommy’s nominator praised his work ethic and expertise, noting that he has “served as a technician in weed science at the Eastern Shore AREC for 41 years.” Most of this time has been spent supporting Henry Wilson’s weed science research and Extension program. Tommy is respected by growers, industry, and former and current graduate students for his knowledge and research abilities.
With Wilson’s recent retirement, Tommy has gone above and beyond to ensure that grower and industry needs are met. He has maintained an Extension and research program in vegetable and field crop weed science to ensure that growers are provided the most up-to-date information. He is also currently helping to mentor a Ph.D. graduate student in the process of completing his degree.
Tommy’s reputation and hard work are evident and well-respected. He has helped ensure that weed science research and Extension continue at the Eastern Shore AREC and that vegetable and field crop growers in the commonwealth are provided necessary information.
