Xi Sigma Pi is the oldest forestry honor society in the United States. It provides recognition for hardworking and deserving students in Forestry. Each fall new members are initiated on the basis of academics and seivice. The community service project chosen by the initiates this year was to clean the trails at the Iowa Arboretum near Luther.IA. At the initiation banquet seven students were initiated, They included Karl Arbogast. Marty Edwards, Mark Gossman. Dave Leibold, Garth Homing. Ryan Reichenbacker, and Tsai-pei Liu. The after dinner speaker at the initiation banquet was Dr. Rick Hall from the ISU Forestry Department. The topic was "Forestry or Fantasy". His presentation was a very exciting and humorous look at forestry that is taking place all over the world.
