On Sunday, April 21 the College of Agriculture celebrated the 49th Annual College of Agriculture Awards Assembly. This day was also Sigma Alpha’s 10 year anniversary at K-State and our Founder’s Day celebration.
Several Sigma Alpha sisters received awards at both our Founder’s Day as well as the College of Agriculture awards ceremony. At this time I would like to congratulate my fellow sisters and their accomplishments in the College of Agriculture.
The following are Outstanding Senior awards our sisters received at the ceremony:
Agricultural Economics Outstanding Senior – Emily Mollohan
American Society of Agronomy Outstanding Senior – Jessie (Zimmerman) Wyrill
Feed Science and Management Outstanding Senior – Analena Simmons
American Society of Animal Science Outstanding Seniors – Autumn Schobert & Tara Ediger
We had one Sigma Alpha sister qualify as the Udall Scholarship Finalist – Kaitlin Morgan
Congratulations to all of you on your individual awards. Several of our sisters also were recognized as part of K-State judging teams for their achievements at competitions throughout the year. These teams where sisters were individually recognized included: Animal Science Academic Quadrathlon, Collegiate Crops Judging Team, Horse Judging Team, Livestock Judging Team, Meats Judging Team, Meat Science Quiz Bowl, Wool Judging Team, Weed Science Judging Team, and Soil Judging Team.
Something else we must all remember is that our Sigma Alpha sisters are not only involved with Sigma Alpha on campus but are serving as officers within many other organizations. Below please find a highlight of what our sisters are involved in on campus.
