Meet the PMP Hall of Fame Class of 2015


May 26, 2015

In March, the Pest Management Professional (PMPHall of Fame Selection Committee convened to determine the Class of 2015. The committee discussed the industry contributions of dozens of candidates nominated for induction. It wasn’t easy, but in the end, the decision was made to induct:

Dr. Laurel Hansen, researcher and biology instructor at Spokane Falls (Wash.) Community College and adjunct professor, Washington State University, Department of Entomology;

Dr. Phil Koehler, Endowed Professor of Entomology, University of Florida (Gainesville);

John R. Cook Sr. (posthumous) of Cook’s Pest Control, based in Decatur, Ala.; and

Noad Corley (posthumous) of Corley Pest Control in Dallas.

You’ll get to better know our PMP Hall of Fame Class of 2015 (aka our “Fab Four”) in the pages of PMP as the year progresses. On Oct. 19, on the eve of PestWorld 2015 in Nashville, PMP will  host a black-tie dinner and induction ceremony.
