Author: Sasha Steinberg
One graduate and three current Mississippi State students are the newest recipients of outstanding achievement awards from the university's Association of Retired Faculty.
Founded in 1986, the association presents awards that serve as tributes or memorials to colleagues and association members who made major contributions to student development during their careers at the 143-year-old land-grant institution.
Chosen by MSU faculty members in their respective academic disciplines, recipients each receive a $500 award.
