Congratulations are in order for Henry Sintim, a PhD candidate in the Crop and Soil Sciences program at WSU Puyallup.

Sintim was recently selected for the Award of Excellence by The Graduate & Professional Student Association (GPSA) for his accomplishments and contributions as a Research Assistant during the 2016-2017 academic year.

Nominated for the award by faculty Markus Flury, Sintim has a lot to be proud of. On top of a normal PhD workload, Sintim also writes his own proposals, is active on the graduate student committees of the Crop and Soil Science Societies of America (currently serving as a Member of the Board of Directors), and has impressively and independently maneuvered his portion of his research project with over 30 scientists involved.

“Henry is an exceptionally motivated and driven student,” Flury said. “Well above the level of a standard PhD student.”

In addition to the award and $500 scholarship Sintim will also attend the annual Excellence Award Luncheon in Pullman
