Three Kansas State University entomology faculty members are recipients of honors from the North Central Branch of the Entomological Society of America.
The honors were presented at the organization's annual meeting in Louisville, Ky.
Raymond Cloyd, associate professor of entomology, pictured top left, received the Award of Excellence in Integrated Pest Management, while Jim Nechols, professor of entomology, pictured right, was honored with the Distinguished Achievement Award in Teaching, and John Reese, professor of entomology, pictured bottom left, was the recipient of the Recognition Award in Entomology.
"We are honored to have three faculty recognized for their expertise and hard work," said Tom Phillips, head of K-State's department of entomology. "Entomology at K-State has a long history of excellence in faculty performance, and Drs. Cloyd, Nechols and Reese clearly carry on the tradition."
The Entomological Society of America is the largest organization in the world serving the professional and scientific needs of entomologists and people in related disciplines. The North Central branch involves entomologists from 14 states and the central part of Canada.
LESLIE SELECTED AS HONORARY MEMBER OF HUNGARIAN ACADEMY OF SCIENCES
John Leslie, department head and professor of plant pathology, was recently selected as an honorary member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, or HAS.
Members are elected once every three years, with 31 members elected this year.
Honorary members are people who neither live in Hungary nor have a connection to Hungary via their parentage. Leslie now joins the ranks of 240 Honorary members within the academy.
The academy was founded in 1825, nearly 40 years prior to the U.S. Academy of Sciences.
