His work epitomizes the land-grant ideal of responding to community needs with technical expertise, applied research, and extension programming. One ISU administrator stated: “Vince Lawson is a legendary figure in agriculture/horticulture circles in southeastern Iowa.” He received his B.S. in horticulture in 1975 and his M.S. in horticulture in 1982, both from Iowa State University.
