Congratulations to Rich Noble – Golden Member

0 Comment

This was the 25th Annual Meeting of the North Carolina Chapter of AFS, held in Durham, NC – February 18-19, 2014, and one of the highlights of the meeting was congratulating Rich Noble with a Golden Membership.

This is on the heels of other awards.  Rich won the AFS Excellence in Fisheries Education Award in 1996. And in 2002, the AFS N.C. Chapter determined that, in recognition of Rich’s outstanding commitment and career contributions to fisheries student education, and through his dedication to teaching and mentoring students, that the Best Student Paper Award of the NC AFS Chapter should be known as the Richard L. Noble Best Student Paper Award.

About the Rich Noble Award
The North Carolina Chapter of the American Fisheries Society first awarded the best student paper award in 1992. At the 2002 NCAFS Chapter meeting, the Best Student Paper Award of the NC AFS Chapter should henceforth be known as the Richard L. Noble Best Student Paper Award, in recognition of Rich’s outstanding commitment and career contributions to fisheries student education. Through his dedication to teaching and mentoring students, Rich has left an indelible mark on our profession. Past recipients are:
Steve Haeseker, John Carmichael, Braden McCollum, Kim Sparks, George Palmer, Scott Waters, Rich Fulford, Bob Barwick, Dave Hewitt, Alesia Read, Jenny Vander Pluym, Lori Davias, Alan Garner, William Smith, Daniel Weaver, Joe Facendola, Justin Dycus, William Smith, and Rachael A. Hoch.
