Congratulations to Christine Sprunger, a KBS-based graduate student in MSU's Plant, Soil and Microbial Sciences program, who was among 18 graduate students nationwide to win a highly competitive 2014 Future Leaders in Science award from the Soil Science Society of America (SSSA).

Sprunger was in Washington D.C. from March 23-26 for an awards ceremony, networking events and an action-packed day of training in policy, advocacy and science communication, followed by meetings with congressional staff from Michigan and Indiana, held to raise support for science, technology and research funding. Sprunger was also chosen to present the SSSA's 2014 Excellence in Soil Stewardship award to U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI).
