Benage Recognized by Sphinx and Mortar Board

Feb. 6, 2013

The Department of Animal Sciences congratulates its own Mariette Benage on her recent recognition through Sphinx and Mortar Board. For the past 24 years, each member of Sphinx and Mortar Board recognizes a faculty or staff member who has influenced his/her college career. Benage was recognized by Lauren Eisemann (Animal Sciences). Since 1999, Sphinx and Mortar Board members also select one outstanding faculty or staff member nominee to receive a one-time-per-year top honor, and Benage was the recipient. This honor is in the name of John and Ruth Mount, and “The John T. and Ruth Weimer Mount Award is presented to the faculty or staff member who is selected as the most exceptional example of commitment to leadership, scholarship and service and the dedication to students that John and Ruth Mount epitomized throughout their lives.”
