Building an Entryway to Knowledge
As a third-generation alumnus of NC State, Jim Whitehurst ’87 has been part of the Wolfpack community since he can remember. Now, the Whitehurst family and employees of Coastal AgroBusiness Inc., for which Jim serves as president and CEO, have made a gift to name the seminar room in the groundbreaking NC Plant Sciences Building. The building will serve as the home for the NC Plant Sciences Initiative: a massive new research effort that brings together crop scientists, economists, engineers, data scientists and experts from other disciplines to solve the world’s grandest challenges in agriculture.
