I always told President Floyd that he had missed his true calling, he should have been an evangelist. I never heard him speak where I did not come away in awe of his ability to speak passionately about his beliefs, the University and a vision of where he was going. He respected the land grant university model and the corresponding need to help rural americans. This showed in his support for making sure WSU agriculture was the cornerstone of the university.
It is hard to imagine a better president for Washington State University.
