Liz Alexander, an ASEC master's student, earned the 2020 Purdue Agriculture Graduate Student Pathmaker Award in May

The award recognizes graduate students from the College of Agriculture who have distinguished themselves as effective mentors and peer coaches by unselfishly investing in success of fellow graduate students and /or undergraduate researchers-in-training.

"At the start of my graduate career, I hadn't thought of myself as a mentor," she says. But the turnover and onboarding of new students over three years with one project taught her to create efficient systems the benefited each team member – and herself: "I learned just as much from my peers and from their perspectives when they come in."
