Marylou Shockley, a professor in the College of Business at CSU Monterey Bay, has been elected chair of the Grower-Shipper Association Foundation board. She will serve a one-year term.
The foundation is the non-profit arm of the Grower-Shipper Association of Central California. It works to educate the community about the agricultural industry.
Its programs include AgKnowledge, an executive leadership program, and A Greater Vision, a series of forums on agriculture-related issues important to the community.
Philanthropy is an important part of the foundation’s mission. For example, since June 2012, it has donated more than $75,000 to pay for salad bars in Chualar, Gonzales, Greenfield, Monterey and Salinas schools.
Dr. Shockley joined CSUMB in 2006. She teaches management and international business; her focus is on leadership, diversity and corporate governance from a social responsibility perspective.
