BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE
Texas State’s renewable resources touch the daily lives of virtually every person in the state and those of countless others around the world.
Since 1987, Texas Agricultural Lifetime Leadership (TALL), administered by the Texas AgriLife Extension, has provided a foundation for the future leaders in Texas agriculture. Established on the ideals of leadership, issue and policy awareness, and basic agricultural principles, the program strives to prepare young men and women for the challenges faced by agriculture in the future.
To date 187 individuals have completed the two-year program and have taken key leadership positions in trade associations, government, public service, corporations and communities.
THANK YOU to the individuals, businesses and friends who invest to assure that trained leadership is available for the future of Texas agriculture.
They share the vision that people are the most important component in sustaining a bountiful food supply. These investors are the core of leadership in the agricultural industries they represent. They collectively are the owners of a leadership program.
It is important to note that a very high percentage of our investors are not one-time givers, but continue to support the program. Their vision is that building an ongoing leadership team is continuous — it builds on itself and results become more permanent as depth and maturity grow.
THANK YOU for the in-kind services from universities, businesses and individuals that sponsor seminars, instructors, facilities and meals which help make each session possible.
Taken all together, this program touches many people worldwide – a visionary network supporting development of leadership for today and the future.
The TALL foundation was formed to invest in people to create programs that broaden the skills, enrich the experience and increase the knowledge of persons likely to become leaders in the arena of Texas agriculture.
This intensive leadership development program also depends on the backing of individuals in agriculture-related industries and public-spirited citizens. We invite you to consider participating or encourage others to join us in providing support for the Texas Agricultural Lifetime Leadership program.
The TALL foundation is funded largely by the private sector. It has qualified for an IRS 501 (c)(3) tax exempt status. To assure the continuation of this vital program, your continued support is needed.
