Passion, generosity, and diligence create a great recipe for success. This recipe closely resembles the life path of Theresa Barosh, a 2016 Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship recipient and a second-year PhD student in the Department of Bioagricultural Sciences and Pest Management at Colorado State University. Designed to support graduate students at CSU who excel academically and contribute to the education of underrepresented students, the scholarship is awarded to only one CSU student each year and consists of tuition coverage for one year and $9,000. "Much of my life I have benefited from the generosity of others," said Barosh. "Scholarships and grants allowed me to attend Willamette University as an undergraduate student, as my parents could not afford to put my nine siblings and me through college." Barosh's passion for making the world a better place started at an early age. She worked to help her community overcome inequalities by starting the Young Artists and Scholars, a non-profit that focuses on outreach, research, and student mentoring.
Each year, Colorado State University celebrates the teaching, research and service achievements of CSU students, alumni and friends, academic faculty, administrative professionals and classified staff. Theresa Barosh, Ecology PhD student, was awarded the Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to a graduate student for outstanding achievement in academics and service to and advancement of diversity. Kate Huyvaert and Paul Doherty of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology were awarded the Office of International Program Distinguished Service Award which recognizes faculty or staff who have made a significant impact campus-wide on internationalization efforts of Colorado State University. Maria Fernandez-Jiminez of Forest & Rangeland Stewardship received the Interdisciplinary Scholarship Award-Team which recognizes her as a part of a team whose interdisciplinary scholarship has had a major impact nationally and/or internationally, or who have demonstrated their potential to do so. Congratulations to everyone!
The global livestock sector supports about 1.3 billion producers and retailers around the world, and is a significant global economic contributor. This sector is also an important source of greenhouse gases, which includes carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide. Now, a new study from an international team of scientists - including Colorado State University's Richard Conant - has found that this sector could significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, a priority for organizations including the United States Environmental Protection Agency. This could be accomplished while maintaining the economic and social benefits from the livestock sector. Conant, associate dean and professor, Department of Ecosystem Science and Sustainability, is one of the authors on the new analysis, published March 22 in Nature Climate Change. Mario Herrero, chief research scientist at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation in Australia, is the lead author. "Manufacturing livestock products requires emission of greenhouse gases," explained Conant.[Archive]
