NDSU Agriculture Collective held the 4th Annual NDSU Ag Week April 16-20, 2018. The week of activities included cookouts and yard games, lectures by agriculture industry experts, a research poster session for students, a bake sale, trivia contest and other games. During the final banquet on April 20, the College of Agriculture, Food Systems and Natural Resources (CAFSNR) named its Top 10 Seniors and presented five awards to faculty. The CAFSNR Scholarship Committee chose the Top 10 Seniors through an application process, and the faculty awardees were chosen by students.

Department of Plant Sciences seniors Christopher Eggen and Megan B. Jones were named Top 10 Seniors and Jones was named the Outstanding Senior. Dr. Ed Deckard received the Open Door Award, which recognizes faculty who are always available to talk to and help students. The award criteria states that the person receiving the Open Door award “exemplifies agriculture by always being there for your neighbor.”

Jones also will graduate May 12 with a B.S. in Crop and Weed Sciences and minors in Agribusiness and Soil Science.
