Congratulations to CFAES Dean Bruce McPheron on receiving one of the five 2014 Experiment Station Section (ESS) Awards for Excellence in Leadership. The award recognizes those who have served ESS, its regional associations and/or the national land-grant system with exemplary distinction. It goes to one individual from each of ESS’s five regions.
Dean McPheron’s award was in the Northeast Region category and includes his service as dean of the Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences.
Recipients of the award, according to the guidelines, “have personified the highest level of excellence by enhancing the cause and performance of the regional associations and ESS in achieving their missions and the land-grant ideal.”
This award and others were presented Nov. 2 during the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities annual meeting in Orlando, Florida. Check out the meeting program here (PDF); the ESS award details are at the bottom right corner of p. 15 and the top left corner of p. 16.
ESS is a unit of the Board on Agriculture Assembly of APLU’s Commission on Food, Environment, and Renewable Resources. Members are the designated administrators of the agricultural experiment stations of all the states and territories.
