Agricultural and resource economics graduate student Thomas P Krumel Jr was selected as the recipient of the 2019 Agricultural and Applied Economics Association (AAEA) Teaching-Learning-Communication (TLC) section graduate student teaching award. This criterion-based award is “to recognize and encourage graduate students who excel in teaching agricultural or applied economics courses,” according to the TLC webpage.

In addition, Krumel was invited to give a short presentation of teaching tips on July 23 at the Association’s 2019 national meeting in Atlanta, Georgia.


The elected Fellows of the National Academy of Kinesiology have elected Distinguished Professor Linda Pescatello to join their ranks as a newly elected Active Fellow. A congratulatory letter received by Pescatello cited her “distinguished contributions to the field of kinesiology, particularly your distinguished contributions in the area of exercise and hypertension, including the first study on exercise hypotension under ambulatory conditions.”

One of six newly elected Fellows to be recognized in 2019, Pescatello is on the faculty of the Department of Kinsiology. The induction ceremony will be in September in Washington State.
