Kimberly Garland Campbell, was awarded the WSU’s Woman of Distinction award. This prestigious award recognizes “women for their accomplishments and contributions to society and the lives of other women. The main criteria to be qualified for the award are the following: 1) A woman who has distinguished herself in academic work, career, leadership, public service, or any combination thereof. 2) A woman who has contributed to the personal growth and success of others, especially women, through education, research, or public or volunteer service above and beyond her expected job responsibilities. 3) A woman whose achievements have created positive social change, increased equality for all, and helped build community through service.”

Kimberly Garland Campbell, was also awarded the GPSA Spring 2016 Academic Advisor Excellence award. Nominated by the MPS GSO officers, this award goes to “someone who is actively involved on campus with not only their own job but also multiple extracurricular activities and clubs.  An excellent advisor is also someone who is always willing to help students and others in times of difficulty.  Excellent advisors are also always continuously improving by attending conferences and releasing publications.  An excellent advisor is most importantly someone who goes above and beyond their requirements as a faculty member.”

Shantel A Martinez, (MPS PhD candidate with Camille M Steber), was awarded first place in the GPSA Research Expo under the category “Agriculture and Natural Sciences”. All participants gave 5 minute poster presentation followed by 5 minutes of Q&A and were evaluated by 4-6 judges.  First and second place winners receive $1,000 and $600 scholarships, respectively.

Craig Morris received the AACCI John C. Halverson Memorial Lecture award. He presented an invited lecture as part of the award at the AACCI Spring Technical Conference in Portland on April 21.
