Dotray's award was also highlighted by Southwest Farm Press in a recent article on women in ag.
In August, AMVAC announced that PSS graduate student Jessica Dotray is a recipient of a 2021 Cotton Industry Advancement Scholarship. Dotray was nominated for the award by Cecilia Monclova-Santana, and is one of only seven students selected.
Scholarship applicants were each nominated by a practicing cotton consultant and the winners from each region were selected by a panel of judges.
“Every year, it's amazing to see the skill, knowledge and passion these students have for the cotton industry, and it's an honor to support young leaders as they pursue their dream careers,” said Paul Vaculin, cotton marketing manager at AMVAC. “It's so important to provide opportunities for the next generation to develop their expertise and thrive in agriculture.”
