The Robins Awards are the most coveted of all Utah State honors, and the awards night is the year’s most prestigious event. They reward students and faculty for hard work and dedication to their individual goals, as well as the goals of USU. This year, our very own Jarod Raithel was nominated for the Graduate Student Teacher of the Year award: This award goes to the graduate researcher at Utah State University who has shown superior research capability and academic excellence. David Iles (David Koons' lab) was nominated for the Graduate Student Researcher of the Year award: This award goes to the graduate instructor at Utah State University who has demonstrated superior teaching capability and academic excellence.
