Department of Plant Sciences students Chad Blank and Paul Moffet were among the 2020 Top 10 Seniors named by the NDSU College of Agriculture, Food Systems and Natural Resources during NDSU Ag Week April 20-24. Blank was named the Outstanding Senior. 

Blank is from Miltona, Minnesota, and grew up surrounded by the golf management industry. This influenced his decision to attend NDSU to major in horticulture with an emphasis in sports and urban turfgrass management and a minor in economics. He has interned at several golf clubs in the U.S., and on campus he is involved with Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Student Government. His graduation plans include a summer internship at a golf resort in the Republic of Ireland before seeking a full-time position in the U.S. or pursuing law school.

Moffet grew up on a farm near Barney, North Dakota. He graduated Summa Cum Laude last fall in agriculture economics with a crop and weed sciences minor and is now employed full time as a sugarbeet agriculturalist at Minn-Dak Farmers Cooperative. While at NDSU, he completed several internships and was active in FarmHouse Fraternity, Saddle and Sirloin, Ag Ambassadors, Honor Commission, and the NDSU Ag Collective. 

Students are selected as Top 10 Seniors based on leadership, service, awards, internships and other significant experiences and accomplishments. The Outstanding Senior is chosen from among the roster of Top 10 Seniors.
