“A lot of people think of entrepreneurship and innovation in a narrow way, but one of the things I’ve seen at Clemson, which is so critically important, is our commitment to being a land-grant institution. So, entrepreneurship is not just high-tech Silicon Valley stuff. It’s our farmers, our agriculture. … Seeing that true commitment to the state, especially to agriculture and our farmers and the environmental ecosystem – that is something that is not just a cool thing; it’s meaningful.”

“The opportunities that converged and that I was able to tap into by the supportive effort from pretty much everybody that I worked with made me who I am today. That’s a true statement. I owe Clemson big time for the incredible support that I have received since the first day I came here, and that’s not one person. That’s a lot of people — colleagues, administrators, department chairs who said, ‘How can we support this to upper administration?’ Who said, ‘How can we celebrate this?’”
