Tom Turpin Entomological Society of America ESA Fellow

Congratulations to Tom Turpin who has been elected as a Fellow of the Entomological Society of America. Tom is being recognized for his outstanding contributions to insect outreach and science education.

Tom Turpin has been a creative force in entomology since his appointment as an assistant professor in 1971. His distinguished career as a scholar, a leader in his discipline, and one of the best teachers at Purdue was only the background for his nomination. Tom is arguably one of the best-known, accomplished, and effective public educators in the discipline because of his tireless efforts to bring the excitement of entomology as a discipline and insect science as a framework for science education to the general public in a fun and engaging manner.

The ESA Governing Board elected ten new Fellows of the Society for 2010. The election as a Fellow acknowledges outstanding contributions in one or more of the following: research, teaching, extension, or administration. Fellows will be recognized during Entomology 2010 – ESA’s Annual Meeting which will be held December 12-15 in San Diego, California. For more information about the 2010 ESA Fellows go to:
