Kansas Ag Connection - 10/12/2017

The Third Annual K-State Animal Sciences and Industry (ASI) Family & Friends Reunion is planned for Oct. 13 at the Stanley Stout Center in Manhattan, the event welcomes alumni and friends back to campus and the opportunity to re-connect with friends, faculty, staff and students.

Starting at 5:30 p.m., the event will feature premium quality meats and dairy products, including pork, beef, chicken and lamb; live entertainment by Rusty Rierson, KSU ASI alum and noted country music artist; and a Junior Wildcat Barnyard area designed for the youngest members of the ASI family.

A highlight of this year's reunion will be the presentation of the Don L. Good Impact Award to long-time pork industry leader and retired state legislator Sharon Schwartz.

The award, presented by the Livestock and Meat Industry Council Inc. (LMIC), is named in honor of Good, who is a former K-State ASI department head, and recognizes positive impact on the livestock and meat industry or agriculture.

You won't want to miss the performance by the "best band in the land," the K-State Marching Band. Following the band's performance, attendees will participate in the Wildcat Walk. The band will form an aisle for attendees to enter the Stout Center led by Willie and the kids.

"Plan to join us for an evening of great food, good music and catching up with friends and ASI faculty and staff," says Patsy Houghton, Family and Friends Reunion chairman from McCook, Neb. "Register today for this great opportunity to re-connect with the ASI department."

Registration and schedule information is available online at www.asi.kstate.edu/familyandfriends.

Walk-in registration may be limited. For questions about the event, contact Lois Schreiner at 785-532-1267 or lschrein@ksu.edu.
