Tarleton professor steps into presidential role


Dr. Don Cawthon was recently voted as the president of the American Association of State Colleges of Agriculture and Renewable Resources for the 2008-2009 year at the organization's annual conference held at Murray State University in Kentucky.

Cawthon is the dean of the College of Agriculture and Human Sciences at Tarleton State University and resident director of The Texas A&M System AgriLife Research and Extension Center in Stephenville.

Cawthon has a bachelor's in horticulture, master's in horticultural food science and doctorate in food science. He has received state, regional and national awards for research such as the Krezdorn Award for Excellence in Doctoral Research, the Joseph Harvey Gourley Award for Excellence in Research and the Texas Governor's Environmental Excellence Award for Agriculture.

Cawthon joined as a member of AASCARR in 1989 and has served on its board of directors for three terms, chaired the membership committee and served on the legislative affairs committee.

As president, Cawthon will supervise meetings and direct matters concerning the association's business, be responsible for contact with other professional organizations and appoint members to fill vacant offices until the next annual meeting.

AASCARR is composed of almost 50 state colleges and public non-land grant universities. Their goal is to create an organization of publicly supported colleges and universities offering baccalaureate degree programs in agriculture, renewable natural resources and related disciplines.

The organization provides career advising and mentoring as well as extracurricular clubs, activities and intercollegiate teams to help develop professional leadership skills in graduates.
