Receiving 15 Emmy nominations is a great accomplishment.
Receiving an Emmy is even bigger.
Receiving several Emmys - AMAZING!
I congratulate Temple Grandin on a lifetime full of achievement and influence. I commend HBO for fitting the bill. I think Claire Danes played the perfect role that was so true to life. It is great to see such a great movie be awarded and the people who worked on it to see their efforts and talents paid off. I'm also proud to be a part of the animal agriculture industry in which Temple has had such a strong influence on.
If you haven't seen the movie or want more information on it please visit the HBO website.
Temple has made a huge impact on the animal agriculture industry in the realm of animal welfare and well-being. She is a pioneer in animal handling systems that reduce stress. If you would like more information on Temple's work with animals and autism check out these sites.
Also, if you are keeping up with Food For Thought events. We will be hosting Dr. Temple Grandin on the campus of Kansas State University in November. Keep up with our facebook page, twitter and this blog to get more information as the big event approaches. Temple will be addressing our student body over her two day visit planned for November 10th and 11th.
