Star Students and Club of the Year Announced

On May 15, the annual student lunch was held by Dean Jennifer Ryder Fox to celebrate the conclusion of the semester and to announce the 2013 Star Students and Club of the Year for the California State University, Chico College of Agriculture.

Every year faculty from each of the four degree areas of the College of Agriculture nominate one student to showcase as a Star Student. Star Students are recognized for their high caliber of leadership, academic success, and sincere demonstration of bettering themselves and the community. 

"All of our Star Students achieve great things and have received recognition from our faculty and staff for all of their accomplishments," said Fox.

The 2013 Star Students are Christie Hobby (Agricultural Business), Trevor Airola (Agricultural Science and Education), Sara Holloway (Animal Science) and Kristina Moore (Crops, Horticulture and Land Resource Management). Each of the star students is profiled on the College of Agriculture website at www.csuchico.edu/ag/about/star-students.

This year, the Chico State Stock Dog Association was chosen as the College of Agriculture's Club of the Year. The group dedicated to promoting the use of working dogs in the livestock industry will receive a $500 award from Superior Ag for their efforts in community service, agricultural literacy and recruitment of new members.

"All of our clubs have done fantastic things this year. They all serve the college and community in some way or another. However, it was a unanimous decision in selecting the Stock Dog Association," said Fox. "They demonstrated the most community service across the board, most of which was completed outside of the College of Agriculture, and that stood out to us."
