Buchanan Named Blue Key Distinguished Educator

NDSU’s David Buchanan will receive the award Dec. 10.

The North Dakota State University chapter of the Blue Key National Honor Society has selected David Buchanan to receive the Distinguished Educator Award.

Buchanan, associate dean for academic programs in NDSU’s College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources, will be honored Dec. 10. The Blue Key Honor Society is recognizing Buchanan for his interest in students and extraordinary efforts to help them, along with his field of expertise and dedication to NDSU.

“I have been observing the good things that NDSU Blue Key does for most of my life,” Buchanan says. “That makes this recognition especially meaningful.”

He joined NDSU in 2007 as a professor and head of the Animal Sciences Department. He became associate dean in 2012.

Buchanan, a Fargo native, earned a bachelor of science degree in animal science from NDSU. He earned a master’s degree in animal science and a Ph.D. in animal breeding and genetics from the University of Nebraska.

The Blue Key National Honor Society was established at NDSU in 1927, two years after it began at the University of Florida. NDSU’s chapter was the 28th in the U.S.

Blue Key’s purpose is to work with students and faculty to further the university’s interests. Membership is based on scholastic involvement, leadership abilities, and involvement in campus activities and service.
