Hall of Honored Alumni
In November of 2011, SFS Alumna Pam Vaillancourt was one of four CAHNRS alums inducted into the Hall of Honored Alumni. Here’s what the college wrote of Pamela:
“Pamela Vaillancourt completed a master’s degree in food science at WSU in 1979. “She has been a leader in our professional community at the national and regional level for over 30 years,” said food science Professor Barbara Rasco in her nomination letter, “and has received the highest recognition that our professional organization can convey as a Fellow of the Institute of Food Technologists.”
Vaillancourt currently serves as vice president for business development and sales for Tate & Lyle, one of the largest providers of food and beverage products in the world. Throughout her career, she has been a strong supporter of students in food science, working to raise scholarship funds, guest lecturing, and serving as one of three judges for the International Food Technologists Student Association National College Bowl. Vaillancourt will receive CAHNRS’ Women’s Leadership Award for Community Leadership and Public Service.”
We congratulate you, Pam!
