Contributors to College of Agriculture food drive: The College of Agriculture fourth annual food drive benefitting Food Finders was very successful this year due to the hard work of these departmental "champions" -- Carol Brock, Academic Programs; Carol Sikler, Agricultural and Biological Engineering; Martha Delaney, Animal Disease Diagnostic Lab; Carol Wood and Lou Ann Baugh, Agricultural Economics; Wendy Madore and Meredith Cobb, Ag Research; Donna Gaylord, AGIT; Connie Foster, Agronomy; Pat Jonas, Animal Science; Pam Mow and Joanne Fisher, Botany and Plant Pathology; Nancy Aldridge, Dean's Office; Melissa Shepson, Entomology; Mitzi Barnett, Food Science; Julie Pluimer, Forestry and Natural Resources; Tammy Goodale, Horticulture and Landscape Architecture; Linda Vallade, International Programs; Jane Robertson, Youth Development and Agricultural Education. These ladies spurred on their respective areas and by holding numerous fundraisers collectively donated a grand total of 50,509 pounds of food, which calculates to almost 38,000 meals. Please congratulate them for their hard work helping to feed the 97,000 food-insecure people in our 16-county area. -- Luanna DeMay (Agricultural Economics)
