The Southern Utah University Range Club recently received two second place awards at the international annual meeting for the Society for Range Management in Minneapolis Minnesota.
Agriculture Science and Industry major, Julian Mesick, placed second in the Undergraduate Range Management Exam (URME) and the club as a whole placed second in the web page design contest.
The Range Club chapter at Southern Utah University gives members the opportunities to “develop skills, network, and have fun.”
Club events are designed to help prepare students for careers in rangeland management. These include training on how to prepare for the Pathways program and opportunities to meet field professionals.
Beyond club events in Cedar City, the Range Club takes biannual trips to the Society for Range Management (SRM) section meetings. At their November awards banquet, the section recognized SUU alumni Mitch Bayles as Outstanding Young Range Professional and Chad Reid as Range Manager of the Year. The section also elected Dr. Randall Violett as their next president-elect.
Dr. Randall Violett’s research is centered on natural resource and range management, native plant identification, and career development for public land management. Beyond his research, Violett advises the Southern Utah University Range Club.
Dr. Violett is familiar with the media and available for an interview. Simply visit his profile.
