John Boul, a Mississippi State graduate student, is the Southern Weed Science Society’s selection for the Outstanding Graduate Student award for the state.

Buol is a master’s student studying agriculture in MSU’s Department of Plant and Soil Sciences. The recognition is given to one master’s student each year across 15 states, and students are only eligible for the award once during their academic careers. Buol also placed second in the Master of Science oral presentation competition.

Buol is the recipient of the 2015-2017 Will D. Carpenter Distinguished Field Scientist Graduate Assistantship in MSU’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the 2016 American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America and Soil Science Society of America Future Leaders in Sciences Award.

Other SWSS winners from Mississippi State include doctoral candidate Michael Plumblee from Lexington, S.C., who placed first in the Ph.D. Poster Presentation, and master’s student Savana Davis from Pungoteague, Va., who placed second in the Master of Science Poster Presentation.
