Last month Tim Hartmann accompanied the Texas A&M Horticulture Team to the National Competition in Orlando, FL for the American Collegiate Branch American Society of Horticultural Scientists.
Of the thirteen competing teams, Texas A&M achieved the highest score. Tim Hartmann was overall high scoring individual in the competition. He placed first in three of the six Tim Hartmann Sweeps American Society of Horticulture Scientists National Competition events, and second in one other event.
This competition represents the second consecutive year that both Texas A&M and Tim have so successfully competed. In 2007 at the American Society of Horticulture Scientists/American Collegiate Branch Competition in Phoenix, AZ, Texas A&M also swept the national competition, and Tim was again the highest scoring individual.
Tim is a 2005 graduate of Blanco High School. While a student at Blanco High, Tim participated in the Ag Dept under the direction of Jason & Felice Marek and successfully competed in many events. At Klepac Greenhouses he gained a wealth of information from his high school job experiences under the tutelage of Jimmy Klepac, Texas A&M Class of '87! Tim will be attending Texas A&M this fall for his senior year. He plans to continue his studies at Texas A&M as a graduate student upon his graduation in May.
Tim is pursuing a career in plant breeding and research. He is the son of Larry & Tricia Hartmann of Blanco, and his brothers are Todd, an engineer in Austin at Big House Sound, & Taylor & Kendall Hartmann of Blanco.
