About the Symposium
The Alpha Zeta chapter of the Alpha Gamma Rho (AGR) Fraternity will present its fourth edition of the Alpha Gamma Rho Agriculture Symposium. The event is planned for Friday, Feb. 22, 2019 at 3 p.m. in the Town Hall of the Staley School of Leadership Studies on the campus of Kansas State University (1300 Mid-Campus Drive N., Manhattan, KS 66506). The event is free and open to the public.
“Alpha Gamma Rho is excited to spark a discussion of this important topic,” said Garrett Lister, Alpha Zeta chapter adviser. “Feeding a growing world population and making sure we have the people, knowledge and skillsets in place to do so is a monumental task. Given K-State’s prominence as a Land Grant University with an outstanding College of Agriculture, we believe that our Alma Matter and thus the Manhattan community will play a major part in rising to this challenge.”
The agriculture and business communities are welcomed to attend and participate in this vital discussion to help accomplish the challenge of providing food and fiber for a growing global marketplace.
Once again, it is an open session, so feel free to come and go as you please. The program is approximated to end around 6pm.
