Chancellor James L. Oblinger and CALS Dean Johnny C. Wynne received plaques commemorating their induction as honorary lifetime members into the North Carolina Farm Writers and Broadcasters Association on June 16. NCFWBA was founded 52 years ago at N.C. State University in the Department of Agricultural Communications (now the Department of Communication Services). Oblinger, Wynne and Dean Alton Thompson of the School of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences at N.C. A&T State University were officially inducted into the organization in March during the group's annual Winter Institute at the University Club in Raleigh.
