ST: What advice can you share with younger turf managers about being successful in the profession? ALBINO: The advice I would give to younger turf managers is to get involved. Join your local chapter and participate rather than just attend meetings. Go to the STMA National Convention and expand your horizons and networking opportunities. Hang out with others that have a passion for our profession. I would also say that if you lack that passion in your gut, you should fi nd another job. I have been doing this for over 40 years and I still love what I do! ST: What are your passions and interests outside of work? ALBINO: Outside of work I would say my greatest passion is my family. I have been married to my wife Karen for 44 years; we have four children and eight grandkids. Hanging out with my grandchildren brings me incredible joy. I also like growing a huge vegetable garden and enjoying the hot peppers I grow and can. What a treat mid-winter! I like sitting around a fi re with family and friends enjoying life. I hunt and fi sh and we eat what we harvest. Quite often I sit back and refl ect on what a great life I have and thank God for all the blessings in my life. /ST/ Continued from page 16 The OFFICIAL online directory: STMA Sourcebook is an online directory of manufacturers and distributors of equipment and supplies of professional sports turf maintenance professionals, irrigation contractors, sports turf managers, professional grounds managers, custom chemical applicators, and other green industry professionals.
