CALS FallFest homecoming celebration
More than 300 alumni, faculty, staff, and students from the college celebrated with friends from the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University before the Virginia Tech-Ohio State game Sept. 7. Among the guests were Rich Linton (left), dean of the College of Agriculture at North Carolina State University who received three degrees from Virginia Tech, and Bruce McPheron (center), dean of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University, pictured here with Dean Alan Grant (right).
Grant and Linton made a friendly wager before the game that the losing team in the Virginia Tech-North Carolina State game had to send a gift basket of agricultural products from his home state to the winner. The Hokies were victorious and a basket of peanuts, barbecue sauces, and pickles was sent north!
