Scholarship endowment honors longtime NDSU faculty member
NDSU has established the Paul Berg Endowment Fund to honor a longtime Department of Animal Sciences faculty member who retired in December.
Berg was a faculty member in the department for 47 years. An associate professor, he taught undergraduate courses in animal breeding and genetics, and meats evaluation. He also coached the NDSU Meats Judging and Meat Animal Evaluation teams, and advised Animal Sciences’ Carnivore Catering graduate student organization.
Through his leadership, Carnivore Catering has served thousands of meals at university functions, alumni events and other gatherings throughout the region. The group’s meals always feature meat as the main course.
To donate to the scholarship fund, contact the department at 701-231-7641 for a pledge card or donate online at www.ndsufoundation.com. Be sure to note that your gift is for the Paul Berg Endowment Fund.
