Winning Nomination

Dr. Norman Borlaug, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, created disease-resistent, high-yielding strains of wheat that pulled hundreds of millions of people out of starvation conditions in many continents. Dr. Borlaug is credited with saving more people than anyone else in history. He has more than 50 honorary doctorates, and at age 92 is a distinguished professor at Texas A & M University, while he travels the world still fighting hunger. This University of Minnesota alum is possibly the most notable person to come out of the U. He is a man of honor and passionate commitment to hungry people all over the world.
