On June 4th, the College of Agriculture, Food & Environmental Sciences convened for the annual faculty and staff awards banquet, and despite the relatively small size of the Recreation, Parks, & Tourism Administration department when compared to peer departments, RPTA faculty and staff again had a major presence. This year, the Greenwood's were the toast of the evening. Jerusha Greenwood won the Outstanding Advisor Award, and Brian Greenwood brought home the New Faculty – Outstanding Teaching Award. Both faculty were nominated by their colleagues, and we as a department are proud of their contributions and accomplishments. Congratulations, Drs. Greenwood!
