DTA members attend national convention

Two members of Fort Hays State University's Delta Tau Alpha chapter attended the 48th annual DTA convention at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, Ky.

Delta Tau Alpha is a national agriculture society for students who rank in the top 35 percent of the their class and have completed 45 credit hours, of which nine hours have been agriculture courses.

Scott Spare, Hiawatha, senior, was the chapter delegate. He and Chase Ostmeyer, Oakley, senior, competed in the Agriculture Knowledge Bowl. Questions were asked in the areas of animal science, plant science, agribusiness and general agricultural knowledge.

The FHSU DTA Chapter won the Corbus Award for the ninth year in a row. The Corbus Award is given to the outstanding DTA chapter based on a scrapbook of chapter activities. The recipient receives a plaque and $150.

Dr. Jean Gleichsner, associate professor of agriculture and chapter advisor, accompanied the group and was reelected to another two-year term as the National DTA Advisor.
