Nine FST juniors and seniors were recently awarded Marie and William Cruess Scholarships at the NCIFT-sponsored Food Science and Technology Showcase on March 1.  This banquet was created as an annual event to bring together industry, faculty, and students, and to recognize student accomplishment.  The award recognizes Mrs. Marie and Professor William Cruess, who was a pioneer in the production of fruit juice beverages, concentrates, and syrups.
