Ethan Massey of Vicksburg, Mississippi, a graduate student in the School of Forestry and Natural Resources at the University of Arkansas at Monticello, is the first recipient of the Dr. Robert H. Burch, Jr., Waterfowl Research endowment.

The award was presented last week at the annual Drew County Ducks Unlimited banquet held at the Monticello Country Club.

The endowment honors the late Dr. Robert H. Burch, Jr., long-time Monticello dentist and avid duck hunter.
