David L. Trauger David L. Trauger

Feb. 15, 2012 – Professor Emeritus David L. Trauger received the Washington Academy of Sciences Leo Schubert Award for teaching science in college. Founded in 1898, the academy has been honoring distinguished scientists who work in the greater Washington, D.C., area since 1940. “I am honored and humbled to receive this prestigious award,” Trauger said. “This recognition means a great deal to me and I thank all for nominating and supporting me.”

Trauger spent 32 years working for natural resource agencies in the Department of the Interior, including appointments as chief of the Division of Wildlife Research for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and director of the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center. He served as director of the college’s natural resources program in the National Capital Region from 2001 to 2008. He also served as associate dean for the Graduate School in the National Capital Region and director of the Northern Virginia Center before retiring in 2010.

“David, almost single handedly, buoyed up our graduate program in the National Capital Region and established a strong foundation for us to build on,” said Dean Paul Winistorfer. “We are thankful for his contributions to our program and the many students he has worked with. This award is a fitting recognition for his contributions.”
