The Plant Pathologist Brothers received this award for their publication titled Rose Disease: Identification and Management (W833) which goes into detail in methods to identify and control a plethora of known diseases that affect roses such as black spot, downy mildew, anthracnose, and more.
UT AgResearch Dean’s Award for Outstanding Professional Staff
“The UT AgResearch Dean’s Award for Outstanding Professional Staff honors and acknowledges excellence of employees in fulfilling their job responsibilities. The award recognizes employees who have demonstrated the following: competence and critical thinking; cooperativeness and team building; professionalism and ethical behavior; initiative, and dependability; and excellent communication skills.”
Our business manager was the first choice for this honor for her intuition, guidance, and reliability. She’s provided 10 years of impeccable service to our department and we are very fortunate to have her with us.
