A sweet treat

A sweet treat

Flying in from Illinois and driving from West Virginia, our meeting in Maryland was indeed a special treat!  Gary Heichel and his wife Iris shared many wonderful stories from their time at Illinois. Gary served as head of agronomy (later crop sciences) for 14 formative years. As I shared news of former Field and Furrow members helping with the Turner Hall Project, they wondered how many alumni remember coming to their home each year for speech contests and sundaes. Do you have a special memory of faculty who showed such warm hospitality?
