to senior Cameron Standridge and graduate student Hardeep Singh Dhaliwal who received Jordan College Dean's Medalist honors.
Standridge, an agricultural education major from Hanford, was a 4.0 student, Smittcamp
Honors College member, and Jordan College Honors Cohort member. He also started the
agricultural education and communications club, and was a former president of the
FFA Field Day Planning Committee. He gained key hands-on experience by working at
the campus meat science laboratory and horticulture nursery, and assisted at the USDA
Ag Discovery and youth ag camp on campus. More on him at this link.
Singh, a plant science graduate student from Mansa, India, also had a 4.0 GPA and
conducted research with using LED lights to lengthen the fall and winter growing season
for young citrus trees in nurseries before they were planted in the spring. He also
assisted pomology faculty Dr. Gurreet Brar in campus research projects related to
almond, pistachio and citrus orchards, and interned with the UC Cooperative Extension
in Fresno. He chose Fresno State because he initially wanted to study drought and
soil and water issues - issues that affect his Punjab village of Dalieawali - and he hopes to start a doctorate program to study the same
issues. More on him at this link.
