Dr. Marda West, Professor of Botany and Ecology in the Department of Biological Sciences (1966 - 2001) was a dedicated master teacher who placed students first on her list of life priorities. Trained as a plant physiological ecologist under world-renowned UCLA researcher, Hall Mooney, "Marda", as she was known to all who had the privilege of making her acquaintance, studied the plant communities indigenous to the White Mountains of Eastern California (bristlecone pine country) and contributed significantly to our understanding of plants' physiological adaptations to differing geological substrates at high elevations.
At CSUS, Marda was a mentor for countless undergraduate, as well as graduate students, and epitomized our Department's ideal of a teacher as an intellectual magnet who inspired generations of future teachers and researchers to succeed in the face of adversity. The Department is pleased to continue Dr. West's spirit of student encouragement and support by establishing the Marda West Scholarship.
