Winemiller honored with Regents, Bush awards
Dr. Kirk O. Winemiller was honored with the 2008 Regents Professor Award at the Texas A&M AgriLife conference, held in College Station in January. He is also the recipient of the Bush Excellence Award for Faculty in International Teaching.
Since 1996, the Texas A&M System Board of Regents has bestowed its regent award to honor faculty members who have made exemplary contributions to their university, agency or health science center and to the people of Texas.
The 2008 Regents Professor Award praised Winemiller as a highly productive and internationally known ecologist recognized for his scientific expertise in biodiversity conservation and management of water resources in Texas and other regions of the world.
The Bush Excellence Awards were established through the support of President and Mrs. George H. W. Bush with financial assistance from the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation.
