Civil Service Award of Excellence
The Civil Service Award has been established to promote and recognize excellence in job performance among civil service personnel in the Department of Plant Pathology.
2017 Recipients: Todd Burnes & Beheshteh Zargaran
Todd Burnes is one of those people who makes the Department of Plant Pathology work. Apart from being an excellent scientist, Burnes is also the Laboratory Coordinator for several undergrad and graduate level courses offered in the Department. In particular his Civil Service Award of Excellence recognizes his contributions to Introductory Plant Pathology (PLPA 2001), taught by Dr. Ruth Dill-Macky, and Principles of Plant Pathology (PLPA 5480) and Introduction to Fungal Biology (PLPA 5203), both taught by Dr. Brett Arenz.
Beheshteh Zargaran became a fantastic asset to the Department of Plant Pathology the moment she joined Dr. Ruth Dill-Macky’s group in 2004. As a lab manager, she maintains the growing collection of plant pathogen isolates in the Small Grains Pathology Laboratory, and handles the hiring and supervision of undergraduate student workers.
