Agricultural economist Thomas Marsh and plant biologist Gerald Edwards will join 22 others from around the state when they are inducted at the academy’s fourth annual meeting in Seattle Sept. 22. They will bring the academy’s total membership to 154.
“It’s certainly an honor to be elected to a group of well known and established scientists,” said Marsh, a professor in the WSU School of Economic Sciences and director of the school’s IMPACT Center, which addresses economic, social, political, and technical problems affecting Washington agriculture. “As an economist, I look forward to working with individuals on policy questions where I can contribute from a social and economic-impact point of view.”
