Kelsey Renee Fields, Cassville, has earned a place on the fall 2014 Dean's Honor Roll at Fort Hays State University, Hays, Kan. Fields is a senior majoring in elementary education.

To be eligible, students must have completed 12 or more credit hours and have a minimum grade point average of 3.60 for the semester.

Trevor McClintock, Cassville, was selected as a Dickinson Scholar at the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources.

The Dickinson Scholars Program allows qualified students to spend a week in January visiting with Kansas City agribusiness firms. This experience provides an opportunity for students to clarify their career goals and see how the subjects they learned in the classroom apply in business settings.

"Being able to participate in the Dickinson Scholars Program was somewhat of a blessing in disguise," McClintock said. "The trip helped me decide to pursue a career in auditing with an agricultural firm since it would combine my love of numbers and my love of agriculture. Overall, the whole trip helped open my eyes to all the wonderful agribusiness firms that are located just in the state."

McClintock, a 2013 graduate of Cassville High School, is a sophomore at MU studying accounting and agricultural economics. In addition to being a Dickinson Scholar at MU, McClintock is involved in several campus organizations including the Collegiate Farm Bureau, Student National Agri-Marketing Association and Agriculture Future of America. Additionally, he is president of the MU Agribusiness Club. He is the son of Kim and Lisa McClintock.

Pittsburg State University has released the honor rolls for the 2014 fall semester.

Area students named to the fall honor roll include Michael Angel, junior, and Mercedes Brink, senior, both of Cassville.
