For the second year in a row, a student in the University of Wyoming’s Professional Land Management Program has been named “outstanding graduate” by the American Association of Professional Landmen (AAPL).
Jared Adams, of Lyons, Colo., was selected by the trustees of AAPL as the top graduate among nominees from all accredited professional land management programs nationwide. He will graduate this year and already has a job lined up with Anadarko Petroleum Corp.
A 2018 UW graduate, Sam Mallory, of Cheyenne, received the honor last year.
“The energy industry recognizes that the faculty and staff at UW have put together a world-class educational program, and Jared’s accomplishments are helping to shine this spotlight on it,” says Mallory, now a land representative with Shell Oil Co. “Despite being one of the smallest, UW’s Professional Land Management Program is being recognized as the best, and the industry wants to hire graduates from it.”
