The Washington tree fruit industry is immeasurably grateful for President Floyd’s commitment to agriculture and WSU’s Land Grant mission. He was a genuine leader whose clear vision and powerful actions helped redefine CAHNRS.

He set high standards and expected the same of others. He was stern and demanding, but had a fully developed sense of humor. His legacy is truly transcendental.
