The last class in ANSC 117, Texas Barbecue this semester was a time to say goodbye to four very important people, this year’s Snazzy Seniors — Jennifer Willis, Katy Jo Nickelson, Stephanie Lastovica, and Marc Vogelsang. These four students have been involved with the Texas Barbecue class since they first took it as freshmen and then as teaching assistants as Super Sophomores and Jazzy Juniors before their senior year. We know of no other opportunity for students to have a four-year college experience such as this, and we are so fortunate to have had these four students with us during their college careers.
It has been a privilege for Ray Riley and me to work with such great young people. The leadership skills they have developed over the years was especially evident this semester, and we will miss seeing them each week. Best of luck with your future endeavors, and know that you will always be welcomed back to ANSC 117!
