Alumni & Donor Profiles

  1. Young Alumna Makes Commitment to Students

    Sandy Kuhn from Stoutsville, Ohio has established a planned gift with the college to support the CFAES Alumni Society Undergraduate Scholarship Endowment Fund.   A 1988 graduate of the college, majoring in Agricultural Education, Sandy understands the importance of higher education. 

  2. Scarlet, gray, and green go together around The Ohio State University’s agricultural facilities, especially when the last color comes from donated tractors, sprayers, and other equipment.

    The College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences thanks JD Equipment Inc. for its recent annual gifts-in-kind totaling $497,800 in new John Deere equipment. The largest donation went to the Molly Caren Agricultural Center, which hosts the Farm Science Review.

  3. New ATI Scholarship Helps Bridge the Gap

    In 2007, Earl and Betty Hawkins made the largest gift in the Agricultural Technical Institute’s (ATI) history with a donation of the $4.8 million Hawk’s Nest Golf Club, which is ranked among North America’s best 201 public access courses.  As Dr. Bobby Moser, vice president of agriculture administration at Ohio State said during the ceremony in honor of their generous donation, “the gift has continued and will continue to serve as a hands-on laboratory for ATI students for years to come.”

  4. As an Ohio State freshman in 1977 without a defined educational plan, Dan Wampler visited many departments across campus. “I stumbled into the lab of Dr. Wilbur Gould in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (FAES) on one of those visits,” he said. “At that time, Dr. Gould was working on tomato-based donuts. He gave me a big bite of one and said, ‘Doesn’t that taste great?’ Although I desperately wanted to get rid of it, I said it wasn’t bad. Gould handed me the rest of the donut and said ‘Enjoy!’” 

  5. Whether donating power equipment or offering students a “realistic” industry perspective, Jeff Voss devotes his time and resources to the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.

    The college congratulates Jeff, who recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of his business, Voss Bros. Power Equipment.

    His three stores offer sales of new and used equipment as well as rental, repair and maintenance services.
