Alumni Board Welcomes New Members


May 15, 2012 – The College of Natural Resources and Environment Alumni Board has welcomed two new members.

    Eric Brittle

Eric Brittle (’97 B.S. in fisheries science) is currently a fisheries biologist with the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries after a stint with the Virginia Marine Resources Commission in Newport News. Brittle, who earned his master’s at Tennessee Technological University, has served as president of the Virginia Chapter of the American Fisheries Society and worked on many fisheries-related projects across the state, focusing on on riverine species. The avid hunter and angler enjoys spending time outdoors with his wife and 1-year-old son.

Dan Cumbo (’98 B.S. and ’99 M.S. in wood science) is the general manager at American Hardwood Industries – Augusta Flooring Division in Waynesboro, Va. The Danville native worked in production and plant management for Coffman Stairs in Bristol, Va., after graduation and later as a research associate at the college’s Center for Forest Products Marketing and Management (now the Center for Forest Products Business). After a period of time as editor of the HMR Executive, a new publication of the Hardwood Market Report, he joined Augusta Lumber as director of continuous improvement. After Augusta acquired American Hardwood Industries (AHI), Dan agreed to lead the flooring division for AHI.

In related news, the alumni board congratulates member Lauren Stull (‘05 B.S. in forestry and agricultural and applied economics, ‘07 M.S. in forestry and public administration) on her promotion to district ranger on the Nantahala National Forest. Stull manages Forest Service operations on the Cheoah and Tusquitee districts, which together encompass over 270,000 acres in western North Carolina.
