Nov. 15, 2012 – After graduating in May with a degree in forestry, Kyle Dingus of Warrenton, Va., has returned to the college as a futures intern for the Department of Forest Resources and Environmental Conservation. During this 1-year appointment, Dingus visits many different venues in order to reach prospective students and promote the department’s undergraduate programs across the commonwealth and beyond. “By establishing contacts that could originate from high schools, community colleges, county fairs, outdoor expos, Virginia Tech Alumni meetings, and other community-related origins, I hope to spread the word to prospective students about our programs and recruit them for enrollment,” stated Dingus.

Last year, Dingus was distinguished as one of four students nationwide to be awarded a scholarship from the Forest Landowner Foundation. Recipients exhibit high academic standards, are active in forestry-related organizations, and have the desire to practice forestry with private landowners. “I would like to work for landowners in Virginia one day to help them achieve their objectives for their forestlands,” remarked Dingus.
