KTC/KySTMA Newsletter Changes Underway.

Dr. Dwight Barkley has edited and produced the KTC Newsletter from its inception almost FORTY (40) years ago.  That is almost unbelievable.    Most of that time he was also the Executive Director and Treasurer of the KTC.  He not only was  instrumental in starting  the KTC but he also has been the glue that held the KTC in its prominent position.  For the last few years he has been relinquishing some of his KTC duties to Dr. David Williams at UK. 

Most recently he gave up the newsletter reins to Dr. Gregg Munshaw, the new UK Turfgrass Extension Specialist.   With a young man’s computer skills, great newsletter software, and several years of  professional education experience at Mississippi State, Dr. Munshaw has just released his first KTC/KYSTMA Newsletter  and it is a DOOZY!  Check it out for yourself and be sure to congratulate Dr. Barkley for his decades of dedication to the KTC and to Dr. Munshaw for a job very, very well done.
