Retirement Reception for Professor Jack Rogers
The Washington State University Department of Plant Pathology is hosting a retirement reception for Dr. Jack Rogers on April 7, 2-4 p.m., at the Paradise Creek Brewery. Friends and family are invited to come wish Dr. Rogers well. Dr. Rogers retired in January after 50 years on the WSU faculty. The Brewery is located at 245 SE Paradise St. in downtown Pullman.
Rogers has been instrumental in developing mycology into one of the areas of research pre-eminence at WSU. He was instrumental in making the Mycological Herbarium at WSU a world-class facility for educational and research purposes and has been a staunch proponent of the university libraries, especially the George Fischer Agricultural Sciences Library, named for one of the mycologists who preceded him at WSU. Rogers was honored by promotion to Regents Professor and was recognized with the Eminent Faculty award, the highest honor a faculty member could receive at WSU.
