AREC Alumnus Bruce Summers Appointed to Administrator of USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service

AREC would like to recognize alumnus Bruce Summers, who graduated with a B.S. from the college in 1985, on his recent appointment to Administrator of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS), part of the Marketing and Regulatory Programs mission area.

He first began work at the USDA in the Fruit and Vegetable program; however, he has since worked his way up through a number of leadership roles over a period of 30 years, becoming a prominent influencer in his field.

“As the Acting Administrator, Bruce has proved he has the knowledge and steady hand needed to continue leading AMS in their service to American farmers and families,” Secretary Sonny Perdue said, according to the USDA's website. “I know that as AMS Administrator, Bruce will build on his great record of success.”

                                                Congratulations Bruce!
