The Texas A&M Agronomy Society is a student organization sponsored through the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences that provides camaraderie among agriculture students and disseminates agricultural knowledge. Members of the organization also serve
the Aggie community by participating in service projects, such as Big Event and mentoring students at Still Creek Boys and Girls Ranch.
Last year, members of the society traveled to San Antonio, where 11 members presented their undergraduate research projects at a national convention for students of agronomy, soils and environmental
sciences. The group was able to travel to San Antonio because of funding provided by gifts to The Association of Former Students.
Members have also participated in several competitions during the 2011-12 school year and won the President’s Trophy Competition, recognizing the Texas A&M Agronomy Society as the best student-led agronomy organization in the country.
“The club has boasted this awardfor the past three years and for four out of the past six years,” said Dianna
Fisher ’13, the group’s president. Members will also be able to travel to the 2012 Regional SASES meeting in Iowa this year, again thanks to support from The Association.
“The Agronomy Society would like to extend their gratitude to the donors that make these opportunities possible for students at Texas A&M,” Fisher said.
