Local Students Among Ohio State CFAES Distinguished Seniors
New York Ag Connection - 03/24/2020

Twenty-five students have been named 2020 Distinguished Seniors at The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES).

The award honors top graduating seniors on the Ohio State Columbus campus who exemplify the CFAES mission in areas such as academics and scholarship, research and innovation, service and involvement, and influence and leadership.

"The Distinguished Senior Award is the most prestigious undergraduate award in CFAES," said Steven Neal, CFAES professor and associate dean for academic programs. "Recipients are our future innovators and leaders who have already made an impact within the academic environment at this university and beyond."

The Distinguished Seniors include:

Department of Animal Sciences

- James Constantino, animal sciences, Poughkeepsie, N.Y.

Department of Food Science and Technology

- Jenna Fryer, food science and technology, North Syracuse, N.Y.

An awards dinner to recognize all 25 winners was planned for March 25, but has been canceled due to COVID-19.

"The safety of our community is our top priority," Neal said. "We are deeply sorry the planned celebration will not occur; however, this honor and these students remain an important focus of our college. Their commitment to their education and dedication to their time as an undergraduate student will still be recognized with a special award package that will be mailed to each student."

In autumn 2019, there were 2,486 undergraduate students in CFAES pursuing 22 majors and 31 minors. Learn more about CFAES academic programs here.
