On Wednesday, November 19, 2014 two of our genetics graduate students received the Ethel Ashworth-Tsutsui Memorial Awards. Rachel Jordan (left) received the award for mentoring and is a graduate student in the department of biochemistry and biophysics under the direction of Dr. Mary Bryk. Amanda Hulse-Kemp received the award in research and is a graduate student in the department of soil & crop sciences under the direction of Dr. David Stelly. Each award recipient received a $500 check, a memorial plaque and a certificate of recognition at the conclusion of the 2014 Ethel Ashworth-Tsutsui Memorial Lecture given by Dr. Tarla Peterson from the department of wildlife and fisheries sciences. Their research and mentoring efforts are much appreciated by their friends and colleagues in the department. CONGRATULATIONS!
