MR. TRENTON HOWELL – 2012/2013 HONOREETrenton Howell


Trenton joined our program in Fall 2011 as an 18 year-old freshman, majoring in Agriculture with a concentration in environmental science.  He is from Surry County Virginia: a small rural town in South Eastern VA. Trenton was raised on a family crop farm which has been passed down through three generations.  In 2010, he was awarded the 4-H All-Star award (Highest 4-H honor achievable at county level) as a result of his outstanding contributions and commitment to the program. On campus, he has participated in several volunteer activities, tutoring students in Chemistry 151&153 and mentoring kids at the elementary school level. Trenton is a well-rounded individual.

At the end of his first year at VSU, Trenton had an excellent cumulative GPA (4.0/4.0) in the Department. All “A”s! Based on his excellent academic performance, he applied for and won, the prestigious USDA National 1890 (four year) Scholarship and was able to intern in Montana with USDA-NRCS, during the summer of 2012. He still continues to maintain the highest GPA and therefore holds our Academic Excellence Honor. Say “Congratulations” to Trenton when you see him around. We hope his story inspires you towards excellence.
