Maverick J. Jones, an NTCC sophomore who hopes to become a teacher in agriculture, became the premiere winner of the Zachary Richardson Award.

She concluded her remarks, however, saying, her expertise in this area probably made her too critical, and that Dorali Hernandez’s “Progression of Medical Maintenance” still merited inclusion in the 2022 journal.
