Steve Gibson was recently honored with the West Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center's Director's Award. This award is a tribute to UT AgResearch employees who exhibit outstanding support service.

As maintenance supervisor, Gibson is responsible for maintaining the entire infrastructure at WTREC.

WTREC Center Director Bob Hayes applauds Gibson’s work ethic and commitment to the university.

“Steve is a great problem solver,” says Hayes. “His skills and knowledge, along with his stewardship of resources, save the Center thousands of dollars annually.
