Yesterday, I went to
to attend a Natural Resource Outreach Committee. It was very productive. We decided to make a forestry awards banquet a new thing where the top forestry awards will be presented. This was a very good move on the part of the committee. Awards such as Tree Farmer of the Year, W. Kelley Mosley Awards, Helene Mosley Awards and others will be awarded. Also a plaque or wall of winners will be made and displayed in the forestry building at Auburn . This banquet will be in February and will be a nice event. Auburn University
I was able to meet and talk to Dr. Shepard, the new Dean of the
School of Forestry, . He met with the committee and was instrumental in helping make this awards banquet a reality. Dr. Shepard was Auburn University Mississippi State’s loss and a great gain for . I was impressed with what he plans to do at Auburn University . Auburn
Tomorrow, fertilize round-up corn and possible cut more downed trees up on property.
