December in the News
Jaime Cummings completed her MS degree in the WSU Department of Plant Pathology in December 2007. Jaime’s thesis project, titled ‘Evaluation of seed and drench treatments for management of damping-off and seedling blight pathogens of spinach for organic production”, was completed in Lindsey du Toit‘s program in vegetable seed pathology at the WSU Mount Vernon NWREC. Frank Dugan, Debra Inglis, and Carol Miles also served on Jaime’s thesis committee.
The annual holiday potluck was hosted by the Fun Committe. As part of this year’s festivities, a food drive to support the local food bank was held. One hundred and sixty seven pounds of food was donated by the department. CAHNRS Dean, Dan Bernardo, generously matched our donation with cash, so in addition to food, $167 went to support members of our community. see photos
