Dave Anderson, Forest Society naturalist and 1985 Plymouth State University graduate, received the 2024 Granite State Award from PSU on May 10 and also served as the Graduate Commencement keynote speaker for the 153rd Commencement.

Nearly 125 graduate students participated in the graduate ceremony, where he addressed master’s and doctoral degree recipients.

“You are the PSU story,” Anderson said. “Shaping the future, leading and teaching future generations of Granite Staters. The journey began right here – on this campus – in this extraordinary community. Plymouth State University is the gateway to the White Mountains – literally and figuratively – not just the place, but the experience of the place. The people and the place are inextricably linked.”

The university awarded Anderson its Granite State Award for his contributions to the state of New Hampshire and his commitment to educating others on issues affecting the agriculture and forestry in New Hampshire.

Congratulations, Dave!
