2016 AfricaRice Dr Robert Carsky Award

At the 39th Meeting of AfricaRice Board of Trustees, the 2016 AfricaRice Dr Robert Carsky Award was presented on 24 March to AfricaRice Country Representative for  Sierra Leone Dr Ajayi Olupomi for his outstanding dedicated service, integrity, and excellence that have contributed to the success of the Center and to Ms Gisele Dago, AfricaRice Welcome Officer, for demonstrating exceptional commitment to her work in support of the Center’s activities.

To honor the contribution and dedication of the late Dr Robert Carsky, who served as agronomist at the Africa Rice Center (AfricaRice) until his tragic death in 2004 in Bouaké, Côte d’Ivoire, a prestigious annual award in his memory has been set up by the Center.

The Carsky Awards for 2016 were presented at the end of the meeting of the AfricaRice Board of Trustees on 24 March by outgoing AfricaRice Board Chair Dr Peter Matlon. 

The AfricaRice Board of Trustees  and members of the AfricaRice family warmly congratulated Dr Ajayi Olupomi and Ms Gisele Dago.
