A $5 million endowment has been established in the name of former Texas Gov. Dolph Briscoe Jr. that will provide additional resources to help support one of the state’s leading adult agricultural leadership programs.
Briscoe Ranch Inc. has established the Governor Dolph Briscoe Jr. Texas Agricultural Lifetime Leadership Extension Program Endowment, also known as TALL. The TALL program is a competitive, leadership enhancement program for continuing education for emerging leaders in agriculture and rural Texas.
The endowment will enrich programming and operations within TALL, according to program administrators. They will also provide support for leadership enhancement programs for continuing education of emerging leaders in agriculture and rural Texas. The TALL Advisory Committee will continue to assist with the implementation of the program curriculum and to raise the programmatic monies to support the overarching mission of developing the next generation of agricultural leaders.
