North Carolina Commissioner of Agriculture Steve Troxler and state Sen. David Rouzer are the 2011 recipients of the Distinguished Service Awards, presented by the North Carolina Agricultural Foundation. The awards are given annually to individuals who provide outstanding support to the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and N.C. State University.
Troxler and Rouzer were honored Nov. 3 during the joint luncheon meeting of the N.C. Agricultural, Dairy and Tobacco foundations at the N.C. State University Club.
The two were recognized for providing “great leadership and advocacy on behalf of our citizens, agriculture and higher education in North Carolina,” said Dr. Johnny Wynne, CALS dean, who hosted the event.
