Shearer named ASABE fellow

Scott Shearer, chair of CFAES’s Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering, has been named to the 2014 class of fellows of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE), one of only 12 individuals to be so honored. He was recognized for his outstanding contributions in precision agriculture technologies as an administrator, teacher, advisor and researcher.

To be considered for the grade of ASABE fellow, an individual must demonstrate unusual professional distinction, with outstanding qualifications and experience in the field of agricultural engineering. Twenty years’ membership in ASABE is also required. Only about two percent of active ASABE members have achieved the grade of Fellow.

The new fellows were inducted July 14 in a ceremony held during the 2014 ASABE Annual International Meeting in Montreal, Quebec.
