Forestry Club President Kyle Hanners and members Mike Radford and Alex Stone traveled with Club Advisor Dr. David Buckley to the Conclave.

“The UT students represented their organization and school very well through their determination to compete in as many physical and technical events as possible,” Dr. Buckley said. “We all enjoyed the hospitality extended by the Louisiana Tech students.”
