HCC fish and wildlife students honored

Written by 

Haywood Community College has honored two Fish and Wildlife Management program students for their achievements in the field.

Jacob Longworth and Alex Wilson were recently awarded the 2013 Dave Dudek Wildlife Award. They are the first recipients of this award and its accompanying $250 scholarship. 

The award is named for retired instructor and founding adviser of the HCC student chapter of The Wildlife Society, Dave Dudek.

The award, presented to two Fish and Wildlife students who are on track to graduate in the spring, recognizes leadership, scholarship, and dedication to the field.

Longworth plans to work as a wildlife biologist or wildlife officer after graduation and Wilson hopes to work to conserve and protect avian species.
