Our dear NAADA friend Lisa Slone Cox died Friday, October 16, at the University of Kentucky Medical Center after a courageous battle with cancer. Lisa, wife of Wes and mother of Sidney, was a 19-year employee of the University of Kentucky and served as the Scholarship Coordinator in the Office of Academic Programs for the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment (CAFE).
“NAADA has lost a true friend,” said NAADA President Keith Barber. “Lisa’s dedication to our association’s mission, combined with her passion to serve our members, was not only evident in her service on the NAADA Board, but also in her involvement across our many disciplines and institutions. She had a way of making everyone she came across better through her smile, her laughter, and her commitment to advancing agriculture through people.”
