Recruiting With Flowers

Students and faculty from TPSS and PEPS, including Tessie Amore, Kauahi Perez, Orville Baldos, Maxwell Bendes, and Koon-Hui Wang, teamed up to recruit potential students to join the Tropical Agriculture and the Environment (TAE) track during the Explore Mānoa: Application Day at Campus Center on November 18. High school seniors and juniors and their families were fascinated by the hands-on curricula, applied science learning, sustainable food-production systems, and opportunity to make gorgeous horticultural products offered by TAE. Many of the students were also impressed by the diversity of career tracks in the TAE program, such as Plant Production and Management; Pests, Pathogens, and Invasive Species; Environmental Urban Horticulture; Plant Sciences; and Environmental Soil Sciences. We look forward to welcoming some as incoming freshmen next year!
