Nicholas Peterson - 2013 Golden Opportunity Scholar

I, Nicholas Peterson, am very honored to receive the Golden Opportunity Institute Scholar award from the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, Soil Science Society of America, and the Golden Opportunity Scholars Institute Committee. As a senior at the University of Minnesota pursuing an Applied Plant Science degree and Soil Science minor, involvement with the undergraduate group SASES (Students of Agronomy, Soils, and Environmental Sciences) has been one of the best parts of my time in college. I am pleased to get to travel to Tampa, Florida for this Fall's national SASES meetings and thank the Societies for supporting me in this endeavor and providing me with mentorship to further my professional development.
