Greenhouse Manager Missy Bidwell receives staff excellence award
On Monday, November 4, Missy Bidwell, Greenhouse Manager of Cornell Plantations was awarded the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) Research and Extension Award in recognition of her commitment to communication.
"In her role managing the entire nursery facility, she needs to work successfully with a wide army of stake holders. She coordinates a large core of volunteers, student workers, interns, and staff who use the greenhouse for both growing plants and teaching. Keeping the highly diverse types of plants from tropical to annuals, trees and herbaceous perennials healthy, and getting them moved into new spaces as they grow requires a high level of organizational skill. Missy is superb at bringing order to this moving target." -Mary Hirshfeld, Director of Horticulture at Cornell Plantations.
The CALS Research and Extension awards recognize a broad range of accomplishments contributing to the realization of their vision, “To be the preeminent college for research, teaching and extension of agriculture and life sciences, developing leaders to address the global challenges of the 21st century.”
