PULLMAN, Wash. — The W. K. Kellogg Foundation selected Washington State University’s Farming and the Environment Project in Mount Vernon as one of six out of 760 new projects to be featured in its 2003 annual report.
James Zuiches, dean of the WSU College of Agriculture and Home Economics, said the project also was highlighted in the foundation’s 2003 calendar with quotes from project leader Peter Goldmark and Shulin Chen, of WSU’s biological systems engineering department.
“This recognition reflects the close partnership that the college has with the farming and the environment community,” Zuiches said. “This partnership is held up by the Kellogg Foundation as an example of the engagement between the University and community organizations.”
Other projects featured in the annual report were located in Honduras; South Africa; St. Louis, Missouri; Hartford, Connecticut; and Washington, D.C.
