John Owen

(BS ’72, agronomy and soils) retired from Auburn’s Department of Agronomy and Soils in July 2013. He is now in his fifth year of a gardening program for adjudicated adolescent males at the Alabama Department of Youth Services. The program, administered through Auburn’s Department of Psychology, “is positively changing the lives of most that become a part of the program. Students respond positively to learning and working in the garden.” John and wife Deb are enjoying retired life on Lake Martin.
