Slade Murray recently joined Tyson as the Grow-Out Operations Associate.

He has lived in South Fulton all his life and is a graduate from South Fulton in 2017.

He is currently enrolled at the University of Tennessee-Martin and will graduate in May with an Agricultural Business Degree.

He has been on the Chancellors Honor Roll for seven semesters and striving to make it all eight semesters.

He has been working with poultry for about six-seven years at Crabtree Poultry farms and knew he wanted to do something with poultry as soon as he started.

When he found out he had to have an internship to graduate college, he knew he wanted to go through Tyson.

Slade stated, “Tyson and Shane Joyner have been wonderful to me and have allowed me to work for Tyson even while in school. The internship experience has allowed me to get a better understanding of what Tyson is about and what a great company they are to work for. I have spent time learning about the broilers, breeders, hatchery, and feed mill. When Shane asked me if I was interested in interviewing for a Grow-Out Operations position, I was thrilled and knew I wanted to do it. I am thankful for Shane and Tyson giving me this opportunity and truly blessed to be a part of the Tyson Family. I am excited for the future and the opportunities that follow and glad to be working at great company like Tyson Foods.”

“Slade has done a tremendous job of showing self-motivation and great work ethic while working the last year as an intern in live production. Slade will graduate in May from UTM, but we have decided to hire him to be part of our TEAM prior to graduation. He will join our management team as Live Operations Associate. He has proved his interest in Tyson and is a great TEAM Player. I look forward to seeing him climb the ranks in management in the next few years,” stated Shane Joyner, Tyson Foods Live operations manager Obion County Complex.
