Auburn, Dean of Forestry

Yesterday, I went to Auburn 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 University.  This banquet will be in February and will be a nice event.

I was able to meet and talk to Dr. Shepard, the new Dean of the School of Forestry, Auburn University.  He met with the committee and was instrumental in helping make this awards banquet a reality.  Dr. Shepard was Mississippi State’s loss and a great gain for Auburn University.  I was impressed with what he plans to do at Auburn.

Tomorrow, fertilize round-up corn and possible cut more downed trees up on property.
