Athens — University of Georgia fisheries and aquaculture major and Rincon resident James Herrin was awarded the Ernie E. Provost Scholarship at the Daniel B. Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources 76th Annual Spring Awards Banquet held April 19 at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education Conference Center and Hotel in Athens.
The Provost Scholarship was established by Forest E. Kellogg, Provost’s first graduate student, and the Warnell School’s Alumni Association in honor of Professor Emeritus Provost, a wildlife professor remembered for his unique teaching style and commitment to students. The recipient must have demonstrated outstanding academic achievements, involvement in professional activities, the desire to advance the forestry and natural resources professions, and commitment to the management and utilization of forest and wildlife resources. The recipient must maintain a GPA of at least 3.0.
“I would like to congratulate James for his tremendous dedication to his education and all of his efforts as a student leader who helps make the Warnell School a great place to obtain a degree and prepare for a career,” Warnell School Interim Dean Robert Warren said. “James has proven his ability to succeed in our rigorous academic program and we are certain he will make a marked contribution in whatever career path he chooses to pursue.”
Established in 1906, the Daniel B. Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources at the University of Georgia provides five degree path programs in forestry and natural resource science and management. These include the forestry, wildlife, fisheries and aquaculture, water and soil resources and the natural resource recreation and tourism programs.
