"Over the years,  I have been able to witness the positive impact that the benevolent gifts of our friends have had on so many facets of the Agriculture program.  From the development of the SFA Gardens to the enhancement of the Walter Todd Agricultural Research Center, these donations have made all the difference in helping us provide quality instruction and outreach opportunities to our stakeholders."

Dr. Dale Perritt,

"The Temple legacy is more than just the name on the front of the forestry building on our campus — it is the technology and intelligence that is literally affecting the air that we breathe and the water we consume. In his gift to the SFA forestry program, Arthur Temple gave a gift to us all."

—Dr. James Kroll,
Rockwell Professor of Forestry at SFA
