Roger Wyatt, a poultry science professor, was honored for his superb classroom skills and as a dedicated advisor to both undergraduate and graduate students.
Wyatt started an upper-level course in mycotoxicology and developed segments of two graduate-level toxicology courses in an interdepartmental graduate program. The program offers students a major in toxicology at both the M.S. and Ph.D. level.
He also started the Poultry Science Club for students and "The Georgia Poultryman," an annual publication designed to foster communication with alumni and to help recruit students for poultry science.
