Penn State News reported on Ohio University alum Carolee Bull being honored Oct. 27 with the College of Arts & Sciences Notable Alumni Award.

The award was presented by OHIO President M. Duane Nellis and College of Arts & Sciences Dean Robert Frank.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Carolee Bull, head of the Department of Plant Pathology and Environmental Microbiology in Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences, recently was recognized by her alma mater, Ohio University, for her professional achievements.

Bull was a recipient of the College of Arts and Sciences’ Notable Alumni Award, an honor given to alumni who have broad accomplishments in their careers, a commitment to community service, and involvement at Ohio University. She received the award during a ceremony in Athens, Ohio, on Oct. 27.

Before the presentation, Bull attended a luncheon with plant pathology students, during which she discussed her professional experiences and advised the students about careers in plant pathology. She also led a roundtable discussion with the genomics faculty interested in microbiomes and presented her research in a seminar titled, “Translational Taxonomy for Bacterial Diseases of Plants.”

In addition, she conducted a mentoring workshop, “How to Be Your Own Best Mentor,” with another group of students. Bull has presented this workshop at universities and scientific society meetings in the United States and abroad and will lead another session on Nov. 4 at Penn State’s University Park campus at the request of the Department of Plant Pathology and Environmental Microbiology and the Graduate Women in Science Society….

“It is a great honor to be recognized by Ohio University, an institution that provided me with an exceptional education and wonderful memories,” Bull said. “Without that early foundation, I would not have had the knowledge and skills necessary to take the next steps of my professional journey. It is the memories of these experiences that drives me to support undergraduate research in my own lab and our department.”
