2020 CFAES Distinguished Senior Award Recipients

The 2020 CFAES Distinguished Senior Award recipients were to receive their formal recognition during the awards celebration to be hosted by CFAES, on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at the OSU Fawcett Event Center. However, as Ohio State’s President Drake stated during the extraordinary times confronting the university and our nation while in the midst of the worldwide outbreak of COVID-19, it is essential that we remain flexible to assure our community stays well and safe, therefore the in-person recognition event was canceled in adherence to implemented university policies and state guidelines. During these extraordinary times recipients were recognized via local media outlets, social media, and postings to the college’s website, additionally award recipients received a special recognition package through the mail.
