Rother earns regular PGA spot
The Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina regularly hosts Professional Golf Association events featuring the greatest athletes in the sport and TSTC Waco graduate Jeremy Rother plays an integral part of the competition because he helps manage the golf course.
He majored in Golf Course Management & Landscape Design to earn an Associate of Applied Science Degree in December 2008.
“The faculty – Terry Ehrhardt, Ron Gwyn, Charlotte Edwards, Rachelle Kemp and others – was always available and willing to help answer questions,” Rother recalled. “They all had years and years of experience in the profession, and they were extremely knowledgeable.”
Today, he supervises 11 employees involved with fertilization, irrigation, pests and diseases, sprayers and spreaders, records, and course renovation.
“TSTC gave me the tools and the confidence to pick my career path and go after it,” Rother said. “Now, I'm in a great industry doing what I love every day. Without the foundation I got from TSTC this wouldn't be possible.”
