Plant Sciences graduate student Amanda Crook was awarded third place in the Frank L. Haynes Graduate Student Research Award competition during the Potato Association of America (PAA) annual meeting in July. The award is given for outstanding student research presentations.

Crook’s presentation was titled Marketability and Seed Production Effects from Glyphosate Drift Injury to Red Norland Potato. Thirteen graduate students from across the country participated in the competition. Cash awards and certificates were given to the top three presenters.

The award honors the late Dr. Frank L. Haynes, long time professor of Potato Breeding and Genetics at North Carolina State University.

Crook attended the PAA meeting on a travel scholarship awarded to her by Controlled Environment Technology System, LLC (see story at http://bit.ly/1KRemfi).

Crook is pursuing her Plant Sciences M.S. degree under adviser Harlene Hatterman-Valenti, Plant Sciences assistant department head, professor and high value crop production project leader.
