Winter Welcome; Davis College fete spotlights queso, Mr. Davis College
By: Norman Martin
To get the spring semester off to a tasty start, members of the Dr. Bill Bennett Student Success Center in Texas Tech's Davis College of Agricultural Sciences & Natural Resources held their annual ‘Winter Welcome & Queso Cookoff' on Thursday (Feb. 19) at the Animal & Food Sciences' Livestock Arena.
Once again the ‘Queso Cook-off' was the late afternoon's highlight event, said Madi Nall, Davis College's Administrator for Scholarships. This semester's top honor went Texas Tech's Livestock Judging Team which won the ‘Golden Cheese Grater' for being the overall winner. The Sigma Alpha organization took home the ‘Silver Cheese Grater' for best presentation.
Separately, the Ambassadors for Agriculture won the ‘Bronze Cheese Grater' for People's Choice. For audience members, Nall added that all the creamy, cheesy and sometimes spicy dips in the contest were available to the public after the contest.
Following the cook-off was the “Mr. Davis Contest,” hosted by the Davis College Ag Council. Contestants competed in western wear, interview and talent.
This year's Mr. Davis winner was Kase LeRow, a junior animal science major from McGregor, Texas. He represented the university's Livestock Judging Team. In addition, John Owen, a senior agricultural and applied economics major from Sealy, Texas, won People's Choice honor representing the AgriTechsans.
During the program, student organizations within Davis College were represented, providing an opportunity to speak with student, university guests and representatives.
