Dana Sautter, a student at Lanesboro High School, has received a Science Achievement Award from the University of Minnesota's College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS). In addition to the award, Sautter also received a $200 scholarship sponsored by local University of Minnesota alumni.

The award recognizes Sautter's strong interest in science and the environment. As part of the award, Sautter received the book, The Viking in the Wheat Field, written by Susan Dworkin. Dworkin's book guides readers through the world of international agriculture through the story of Bent Skovmand, University of Minnesota alum, plant pathologist, genetic preservationist and expert on seed banks. The book has been called "A must read for anyone concerned about the future of the world's food supply."

The award is sponsored by the CFANS Alumni Society, a 3,400-member organization dedicated to connecting alumni and friends to the college; supporting excellence in the educational experience; building college pride, spirit, and community; and enhancing the reputation of the college.

More information about the college is available at The college's priorities are to develop viable food and agricultural systems for the 21st century; to become a national center of excellence in research related to energy and products from renewable resources; to address fundamental issues related to global climate and environmental change; and to study the origin, distribution, economic value, and conservation of biodiversity. More than 2,300 students are enrolled in the college's undergraduate and graduate programs.
