WSU official honored by wine grape growers

PULLMAN – Robert G. Stevens, who serves as director of WSU’s Prosser Irrigated Agriculture Research and Extension Center, received an Industry service Award from the Washington Association of Wine Grape Growers at the organization’s award luncheon Friday in Kennewick.
 
“Bob not only contributed to the success of grape and wine growers through his work as a soil scientist but also in his recent role as interim center director at Prosser,” said Vicky Scharlau, executive director of the association.
 
“He is truly one of our unsung heroes doing work required but largely unnoticed,” she said. “We just wanted him to know that we noticed and we appreciate all he’s done for our industry and for the other ag sectors he serves.”
 
Stevens, Extension soil specialist and member of the WSU faculty for 24 years, has been serving as interim director of the Prosser center since 2004.
