Members of the CAHNRS Alumni & Development and Communications teams won a first place award this summer from the National Agricultural Alumni and Development Association (NAADA), for their eye-catching, creative postcard aimed at first-time donors to the college.
The colorful postcard reminds donors of quintessential campus experiences, and thanks them for support that helps new generations of students have the same life-changing moments.
The card was developed by Jessica Munson, CAHNRS Assistant Director of Development, to support stewardship, and was designed by Gerald Steffen, CAHNRS Creative Manager.
The award was presented at the association’s annual conference, June 13 in Baton Rouge, La.

Helping scientists and farmers in Nepal, Naidu Rayapati, professor of plant pathology and director of the WSU Irrigated Agriculture Research & Extension Center, co-led a hands-on training course on viral diseases that harm vegetable crops.
More than 20 early-career scientists from the Nepal Agricultural Research Council, academic institutions and non-profits learned how to identify symptoms and detect viruses in the field, in a three-day course held this spring in Kathmandu, Nepal.
The course was funded by USAID’s Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Integrated Pest Management (IPM IL), managed by Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Rayapati co-led the course with Amer Fayad, Associate Director of IPM IL at Virginia Tech.
Course participants came away with better knowledge to protect their crops.
