CFAES Give Today

Department of Entomology


From the Chair, Jamie Strange, and Associate Chair, Pete Piermarini

We are delighted to announce the Faustini Entomology Scholarship, that will provide one or more scholarships to undergrad students in the Department of Entomology. These funds will immediately be used to support our students!

With Andy Michel’s promotion to associate dean and director of the CFAES Wooster campus in January, Pete Piermarini started serving as associate chair of CFAES Entomology in February. We are excited to welcome our new and soon-to-be new colleagues:

Billy Kennedy, instructional design specialist in Columbus (March)
Carrie Elvey, community outreach specialist in Wooster (March)
Zach Wilson, fiscal officer in Columbus (April)
Shaohui Wu, assistant professor, turfgrass health specialist in Columbus (June)
Sam Ward, assistant professor, forest entomologist in Columbus, (July)
We want to congratulate and wish the best of luck to Steve Baker, who was recently promoted from Entomology fiscal officer to the CFAES Finance Office as a financial operations advisor.

In other news, the Wooster Science Building continues to expand its capacity for conducting research with some recent construction that started in April to build out third floor shell lab space and additional office spaces for the USDA labs of our adjunct Entomology faculty Chris Ranger and Mike Redding. We wish all a productive field research season and look forward to welcoming a new crop of Entomology undergraduates and graduate students!
