Several staff members receive awards (12/8/2014)

Applause photoRick Schmidt, Oliver County Extension agent, was honored with the North Dakota Soil Conservation Achievement Award at the 2014 NDASCD annual meeting in recognition of his outstanding efforts to conserve valuable soil resources. Colleagues can view his farm’s aerial photo at the state fair and other ag shows over the next year.

Warren and Mary Froelich, agents in Williams County, and Joel and Linda Lemer (Joel is agent in Foster County) were recognized as the Williams and Foster County honorees at the Nov. 21 Harvest Bowl banquet for their dedication and hard work as outstanding agriculturists.

The Soil Health Team (Extension’s Chris Augustin and Naeem Kalwar, soil health area specialists at the NCCEA and LREC, respectively, and Abbey Wick, soil health specialist, and Ag Experiment Station’s Ann-Marie Fortuna, Jasper Teboh, and Ben Geaumont) received the Service Award from the North Dakota Chapter of the Soil and Water Conservation Society on Dec. 4 during the society’s annual meeting. The award recognizes their success in soil and water conservation work and valuable contribution to the art and science of good land use. They note that their team’s honor extends to all of their research collaborators on the main campus, at the RECs, and at other state and national level institutions; their outreach collaborators within county and state Extension; and all of their farm collaborators.

Please join me in a round of applause for all of their great efforts.

Chris Boerboom, Extension Director
