Warren County Extension Service Agent Sandra S. “Sandi” Havard was part of a group recognized recently for their efforts to document flooding and the related issues in the South Delta region of Mississippi during 2019 and early 2020.

Havard along with Emily Carter, Preston Aust, Curt Lacy, David Buys, Phillip Vandevere, Nicolas Quintana, and Mary Catherine Brooks were awarded the Rosalind and Rodney Foil Teamwork Award.

The award is named for the  longtime Vice President of Mississippi State University’s School of Agriculture, Forestry and Veterinary Medicine, Rodney Foil, and his wife Rosalind. The award recognizes exemplary collaboration by University employees in those areas of study. 

Due to COVID-19 the annual awards banquet was not held, instead a virtual announcement ceremony was conducted in mid-August.

The awards banquet can be viewed on the Mississippi State University website.
