Three plant sciences students recognized by national horticultural society
Each spring, the American Society for Horticultural Science recognizes undergraduate students majoring in horticulture or in a plant science/crop science department with an emphasis or major in horticulture. Three students from the NDSU Department of Plant Sciences were recognized this year.
Hannah Barrett was named a 2014 Outstanding Undergraduate Horticulture Student. The award recognizes exceptional undergraduate horticulture students in baccalaureate programs. Honorees are selected by their departments on the basis of their academic achievements, leadership abilities, campus or club participation, and service to their department. Recognition is limited to one student per institution per year.
Matthew Brooke and David Mettler were chosen as 2014 Collegiate Scholars. The award recognizes the academic achievements of undergraduate students with junior or senior standing who are majoring in horticulture. Students considered for this honor must be in the top 15 percent of their class. Honorees are selected by their departments on the basis of their academic achievements, leadership abilities, campus or club participation, and service to their department.
