New ATI faculty member receives award

Submitted by Kris Boone,

Dr. Tracy Kitchel, chair of ACEL, has announced that Dr. Joy Rumble, our new Assistant Professor of Agricultural Communication, has earned the Award of Excellence in Research by the Association for Communication Excellence (ACE). According to their website, ACE is an international association of communicators, educators and information technologists. The organization offers professional development and networking for individuals who extend knowledge about agriculture, natural resources, and life and human sciences.

Although Dr. Rumble does not officially begin with Ohio State until August 15 and technically received this award under the University of Florida banner, we get the honor of keeping Dr. Rumble and her skills that contributed to her winning that award!

Dr. Rumble is one of our own, by the way, graduating from ATI with an A.S. in livestock science before going on to earn a B.S. and M.S. in animal sciences at CFAES. She went on to earn her doctorate at University of Florida in agricultural communication. She is a native of Mt. Gilead, Ohio.
