Josh Manser, a 15-year employee of the Cornell University Agricultural Experiment Station (Cornell AES), has been promoted to supervisor of the Kenneth Post Laboratory greenhouses on Tower Road. The complex of greenhouses and plant growth chambers is used extensively for on-campus teaching, and includes the rebuilt Liberty Hyde Bailey Conservatory.
“Because of the proximity of the plant science greenhouses to central campus, the growers there provide a lot of support to faculty teaching courses and Josh has excelled at that,” said Rhoda Maurer, Greenhouse Manager for Cornell AES. “In addition to taking excellent care of the plants and facilities, Josh has amazing human skills. He’s acquired the respect of many of his faculty customers, so I know he’ll be able to build on those positive relationships across campus.”
