Dean's Spring Dinner 2015

May 21, 2015 (All day)

The Ohio State University Airport at Don Scott Field served as a scenic backdrop for the 2015 Dean’s Spring Dinner.

Nearly 200 guests filled a decorated airport hangar to celebrate the college’s non-scholarship donors, whose support benefits faculty, teaching, research, operations and program funds.

A panel discussion and short video focused on the college’s nontraditional spaces for learning, research and outreach. Included on the panel were Dr. Bruce McPheron, Vice President for Agricultural Administration and Dean; Mike Townsley, President of Bob Evans Farms Food Products Division; Dr. Henry Zerby, Chair and Professor, Department of Animal Sciences; Dr. Lauren Pintor, Assistant Professor, School of Environment and Natural Resources; Dr. Laura Lindsey, Assistant Professor, Department of Horticulture and Crop Science; and Benjamin Wenner, Doctoral Candidate, Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program in Nutrition (OSUN). Recent graduate Caitlyn Black served as moderator.

Any college with our size and many specializations requires facilities to meet those needs. Consider giving to the CFAES New Facilities & Renovations Fund at
