The national award offers individual recognition to outstanding graduating college seniors in the plant sciences. Drew was one of 25 college students across the U.S. and Canada to receive this national recognition.

Drew is the first Fort Lewis College student to receive this award and plans to attend graduate school. He graduated in 2008 from Glenwood Springs High School. Parents Maureen and Dennis Walters, and brother Dylan, are very proud of Drew’s accomplishment.
