Plant Sciences Students Receive American Society for Horticultural Science Honors

Three undergraduate horticulture students from NDSU Plant Sciences were recognized by the American Society for Horticultural Science.

Each spring, the American Society for Horticultural Science (ASHS) recognizes undergraduate students majoring in horticulture or in a plant science/crop science department with an emphasis or major in horticulture. Three students from NDSU Plant Sciences were recognized this year.

Hannah Barrett was named a 2014 ASHS Outstanding Undergraduate Horticulture Student. This 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 ASHS Collegiate Scholars. This 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% 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.

The mission of ASHS is to promote and encourage national and international interest in scientific research and education in horticulture in all its branches. To learn more about the society, visit their website at http://www.ashs.org/.
