Monday night, the Poultry Science Club hosted Randall Ennis, the President of the Alabama Poultry & Egg Association, to speak about "Change". His presentation was a fascinating mixture of professional development and encouragement for students in the department. With full belief in the technological revolution the industry has opportunity for, employment rates of well trained graduates, and enthusiasm in the mastery of working as a team, at one point in his presentation Ennis ensured his student-audience, "If you aren't a C.E.O. in twenty years, it's because you didn't want it." Club members appreciated the presentation, and were able to spend time talking with Ennis after he spoke.
