Awards

Andrew Osgood, the newest police officer in the Department of Public Safety, graduated from the Delaware State Police Academy on Aug. 2. Osgood acted as the class speaker, and was the recipient of the academy’s Leadership Award. He will be assigned to field training for the next 12 weeks, before being assigned to a permanent squad. He joins the ranks of 45 UD police officers currently patrolling the University campus.

Service

Sue Barton, Cooperative Extension specialist and an associate professor in the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences, has been named the Extension Division vice president for the American Society for Horticultural Science (ASHS). ASHS is the main organization of professional horticulturalists and includes members from industry, academia and extension. The term for vice president begins in August and Barton will serve for three years. Barton has been with the organization since she was a graduate student in the 1980s and she also serves as an associate editor for one of the society’s publications. “I have been working with ASHS in that capacity for a long time,” said Barton. “But this will give me an opportunity to get to know the inner workings of the organization a little better and hopefully provide some service to other extension professionals who are involved.” Barton said that another reason she wanted to get involved was to raise the national presence of the University of Delaware. “I think it’s good for the University when faculty take national roles so I felt like it was also my responsibility once I was asked to do it -- to fulfill this for UD in addition to doing it for horticulturalists in general.”
