Tuesday, Mar. 6, 2012

The School for Field Studies (SFS) announced that Justin Covino (Junior, Environmental Science major) has been selected to receive an SFS Distinguished Student Research Award for Fall 2011. At the SFS Costa Rica field station, Justin assessed the effect of surrounding forests on the tree diversity of shade-grown coffee farms. The Distinguished Student Research Award recognizes Justin's excellence and diligence in research, as well as his teamwork and leadership during the semester. As you can see from this photo, he is also a sharp dresser who carries a machete. Congratulations, Justin, from the entire faculty of Environmental Studies and Sciences!
