The email reads as follows:
|Golembiewski will begin his new position with Bayer on April 2nd.|
Please let me express that this is the most difficult decision that I have ever had to make professionally but for those who know me understand how important family is to me. I can’t overstate how appreciative I am for the support and friendship you have provided me over the past four years. I believe with all my heart that the OSU Turf Program is the preeminent turf program on the West Coast and it was made possible by each and every one of you.
I am not saying goodbye because I know many of our paths will cross again in the future. I plan to attend the upcoming OGCSA Events in May but if I don’t happen to see you, please let me say “THANK YOU” for making my stay at OSU a truly special time in my life. I wish each and every one of you all the best in your future endeavors and hope that you will continue to provide the amazing support shown to me for the next turf professor and OSU Turf Program.
With sincere appreciation,
Rob Golembiewski, Ph.D.
Oregon State University
I was unable to reach Rob this morning when I called his cell, but we'll hopefully get in touch with him soon. Rob has been good to Golfdom, always taking the time to share insights and perspectives. We wish our best to Rob in this future endeavor... a big loss for the Oregon State turf program, but a big gain for Bayer CropScience.
