Sue Thomas receives one of the 2018 Griffin Campus Award of Excellence
Congratulations to Sue!
For the second year in a row, one of our Center for Food Safety Employees was recognized by the entire Campus. On Friday March 16 at an event in the Stuckey Auditorium, Sue Thomas, who recently retired as CFS Senior Accountant was one of three Campus classified staff who received the Award of Excellence. Awardees were selected among ten nominees from different departments. This award is intended to recognize UGA’s personnel who have demonstrated outstanding contributions to our institution. The other awardees were: Adam Gregory from Plant Genetic Resources Conservation Unit and Lewayne White from Crop and Soil Sciences.
CFS welcomes Dr. Michael J. Rothrock as its most recent Adjunct Faculty. Dr. Rothrock is a Research Microbiologist with the Egg Safety and Quality Research Unit located at the U.S. National Poultry Research Center (USNPRC) in Athens, GA. We are very pleased to increase our expertise network on Poultry Safety and Microbiology.
Dr. Rothrock’s research takes a microbial ecology approach to food safety issues within the various environments along the poultry production continuum, specifically focused on pastured poultry systems. He employs a polyphasic, systems-based method to understand the complex interactions between bacterial pathogens and their environment.”
