Wendell Lipscomb

“I wanted to advance my career with Tractor Supply Company (TSC). I earned my M.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies in 2020 with a joint focus on Business Management and Higher Education. I’ve been promoted twice since beginning my master’s degree, and I now manage the TSC store in Roanoke, Texas. The information and knowledge I gained from my degree has been very useful in my professional career.”
