Bull, a researcher with the US Department of Agriculture in Salinas and plant pathologist extraordinaire, has been recognized for her work mentoring young Latinos and Latinas in Monterey County.
Bull won the 2012 ARS (Agricultural Research Service) Administrator’s Outreach, Diversity, and Equal Opportunity Awards Program. "This program is to annually recognize employees for exemplary achievements in promoting a diverse workplace free from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation; and for their demonstrated commitment to workforce diversity through actions that clearly exceeds responsibilities of their positions or assignments in ARS."
Carolee was recognized for "innovative program development and outstanding mentoring provided to minority and women undergraduate researchers in the Salinas Valley of California.”
I profiled Carolee in June, when her student Ana Ibarra received a national award for her work in the USDA lab. Now it's Carolee's well deserved turn. Congratulations, Carolee. Well deserved.
