Congratulations Bridget and Jackie!

Community members from across the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences gathered with friends and family Nov. 5 to celebrate the 15th annual Research, Extension and Staff Awards. The awards observe important and far-reaching achievements of CALS faculty and staff, who are nominated for continuously surpassing expectations and making significant, unique contributions to the college.

Two Horticulture Section staffers were among those honored, Jackie Nock and Bridget Cristelli. (Bridget recently departed the section to take a graduate student coordinator position at the Dyson School.)

“I am awestruck by the important and far-reaching achievements of our colleagues across the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences,” said Kathryn J. Boor ’80, the Ronald P. Lynch Dean of CALS. “Tonight’s honorees contribute to the life-changing work of CALS. Their research and extension activities epitomize the Land Grant mission of Cornell CALS — which is to be fundamentally invested in improving the lives of people, their environments and their communities in New York and around the world.
