Amanda Kramer and Emily Walker are named Volunteers of Distinction

Master’s student Amanda Kramer and undergraduate student Emily Walker have received the award for “Volunteer of Distinction” from UTK’s Office of the Provost. This award recognizes academic excellence among undergraduate and graduate students, and only a few awards are granted to each department every year. Amanda’s research has focused on the impacts of cover crop diversity on nutrient availability and crop productivity, and Emily’s research has focused on the effects of agricultural farming practices on pollinator diversity and abundance. We are very proud of Amanda and Emily for this huge recognition!
