The Associated Students of UC Davis recently presented its 2013-14 Excellence in Education Awards, one in each undergraduate college, plus educator of the year: Rebekka Andersen, an assistant professor in the University Writing Program.

The recipients are Frank Mitloehner, associate professor of animal science; Jay Rosenheim, professor of entomology; Stephen Robinson, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering; and Abigail Boggs, a lecturer in American studies.

————

Katelyn Erickson of Arbuckle qualified for the spring 2014 dean’s list at Belmont University In Nashville, Tenn. Students must earn at least a 3.5 grade-point average to be included on the list.

Erickson, the daughter of Bill and Cara Erickson, is majoring in nursing at Belmont.

Belmont was named for the fifth consecutive year as one of the top “up-and-comer” universities by U.S. News & World Report. It enrolls about 6,900 students, who come from every state and more than 25 countries.

The Minority Corporate Counsel Association will present its lifetime achievement award to Cruz Reynoso, a professor emeritus in the King Hall School of Law at UC Davis. The presentation is scheduled for July 25 during the association’s Diversity Gala at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

From civil rights attorney representing California farmworkers, Reynoso rose to become an associate justice of California’s 3rd District Court of Appeal and the state Supreme Court — becoming the first Latino to serve on the state’s highest court.

President Clinton appointed him to the Commission on Civil Rights and subsequently presented him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor.

Reynoso co-founded the Hispanic National Bar Association, and, in 2011, he received the association’s highest honor, the Lincoln-Juarez Award, named Abraham Lincoln and Benito Juarez, the presidents of the United States and Mexico, contemporaries, both lawyers who fought injustice.

Gov. Jerry Brown has appointed Steven Cliff, 44, of Sacramento, as assistant director of sustainability at the California Department of Transportation.

Cliff has been assistant chief of the Stationary Source Division at the California Air Resources Board since 2013, where he has served in several positions since 2008. Those positions include chief of the Stationary Source Division Climate Change Markets Branch and air pollution specialist and manager of the program development section in the Office of Climate Change.

He has been an associate professional researcher III at the Air Quality Research Center and the Institute of Transportation Studies at UC Davis since 2011, where he has served in several positions since 1998, including associate professional researcher I in the department of applied science, assistant professional researcher II, III and IV in the department of applied science, admissions chair in the Atmospheric Science Graduate Group and postdoctoral research fellow.

He has been approved program coordinator at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Advanced Light Source since 2004, where he has served in several positions since 2001, including beamline scientist and primary research team coordinator.

Cliff earned a Ph.D. in chemistry from UC San Diego. This position does not require Senate confirmation and the annual salary is $135,456. Cliff is a Republican.

Matthew Palm of UC Davis was selected for the Dwight David Eisenhower Fellowship, administered by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The Eisenhower fellowship is a competitive transportation program that furthers the careers of recipients by providing the financial resources needed to pursue their research. It includes tuition as well as travel and expenses to attend the Transportation Research Board annual meeting in Washington, D.C., in January.

The fellowship will allow Palm to continue his interest in social justice regarding transportation and housing issues.

His work includes a new program that lends folding bikes to families in Woodland, which gives people the ability to safely store them inside their homes. The program allows Palm to look at the factors of why people prefer to bike. He examines the entire social picture, including things like happiness, general health and their new driving tendencies.

Kyle Blyth of Davis, who is in the computer science program in the Rochester Institute of Technology’s B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences, made the dean’s list for the spring semester.

Degree-seeking undergraduate students are eligible for the dean’s list if their grade-point average is 3.4 or above.

The Rochester Institute of Technology is in Rochester, N.Y.

————

Kaisha Johnson of Davis was named to the dean’s list at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pa., for the spring semester. Dean’s list students have achieved a grade-point average of 3.5 or higher on a scale of 4.0.

————

Mary Lou Flint, a longtime leader of the University of California Statewide Integrated Pest Management Program and an Extension entomologist with the UC Davis department of entomology and nematology, is the recipient of the 2014 James M. Meyer Distinguished Achievement Award for her outstanding contributions to the university.

Flint, UC IPM’s associate director for Urban and Community IPM, and who has just retired from the university, is not only the third entomologist to receive the award, but the third IPM specialist. A dinner honoring her will take place in the fall.

Flint has been heavily involved in the leadership of UC IPM Program since 1983 and is UC IPM’s longest-tenured employee. Also since 1983, she has served as an Extension entomologist in the department.

Some of her accomplishments include writing the UC IPM’s “IPM Manual” series of books from 1980 to 2007, including IPM manuals on 15 different agricultural crops or crop groups; establishing the UC IPM Pest Note series for home, garden, landscape and urban audiences; authoring several important books on IPM including “Pests of the Garden and Small Farm,” “IPM in Practice: Principles and Methods of IPM” and “The Natural Enemies Handbook”; creating some of the earliest interactive learning tools of IPM, and developing hands-on, train-the-trainer programs for UC Master Gardeners, retail nursery personnel and landscape professionals.

————
Megan Rodman of Davis graduated summa cum laude from Sierra Nevada College in Incline Village, Nev., with a degree in business administration.
Rodman was honored to be a candidate for valedictorian and an inductee in the Triple E Society.
