Larry Rupp Wins 1st & Best of Show in the Pi Alpha Xi Photo Contest

 
Larry Rupp, professor of ornamental horticulture and Extension specialist in the Department of Plants, Soils and Climate, took First Place and Best of Show in the Pi Alpha Xi photography contest. The photo contest was held during the American Society for Horticultural Science (ASHS) annual conference in Miami, Florida, in early August.  
 
According to the ASHS website, Pi Alpha Xi established an open photography contest in 1996 to be held in conjunction with the Annual Conference of the American Society for Horticultural Science. The purpose of the contest is to promote Pi Alpha Xi (PAX) to ASHS membership, to support Pi Alpha Xi’s scholarship program and to encourage horticulture-related photography.
 
Rupp’s winning photo is of the plant False Hellebore (Veratrum californicum).
