Outstanding Recent Alumni in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences
Mark Cline was named this year’s Outstanding Recent Alumni in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences for distinguishing himself since graduation.
Cline — who received his bachelor’s degree in animal and poultry sciences in 1999, his master’s degree in 2002, and his Ph.D. in 2005 in the same field — is now a professor at Radford University. Cline has an exemplary history of securing grant funding, generating significant and important research scholarship, and mentoring students for subsequent success in top graduate and professional programs.
“I am very grateful to my past professors at Virginia Tech,” Cline said. “There, I learned to believe in myself and how to do science. I attribute my professional successes as a ‘teaching’ professor because I mimic how my past professors inspired me to reach for higher levels. Through my ongoing research collaborations with APSC faculty, Virginia Tech continues to inspire me.”
