Friends and family of the late Mark A. Schmoll have established the Mark A. Schmoll Memorial Endowed Scholarship in the College of Forest Resources. Schmoll was an undergraduate student in the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. On April 9, 1998, Schmoll died in a drowning accident while radio-tracking wood duck broods at the Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge. Schmoll's family and friends established the scholarship in memory of his passion for wildlife and dedication to the wildlife profession. "We are very appreciative of the leadership role that Dr. Rick Kaminski took in soliciting and securing the funds needed to endow this scholarship," said Keith Gaskin, CFR director of development. The endowed scholarship will be awarded annually to an outstanding Mississippi State undergraduate student in wildlife science/ management who shows promise of an outstanding career in the wildlife profession.
