Animal Sciences and Industry

Register Today for Oct. 7 K-State AS&I Family & Friends Reunion

Family & FriendsMANHATTAN, Kan. – Pre-registration deadline is Friday for the Second Annual K-State Animal Sciences and Industry (AS&I) Family & Friends Reunion. Planned for Oct. 7 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 include great food featuring beef, pork, chicken and lamb; live entertainment by Rusty Rierson, KSU AS&I alum and noted country music artist; and a Junior Wildcat Barnyard area designed for the youngest members of the AS&I family.

A highlight of this year's reunion will be a performance by the "best band in the land," the reigning Sudler Trophy Award winner, 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.

The evening will be capped off with the presentation of the Don L. Good Impact Award to the Certified Angus Beef (CAB) program and recognition of the many K-State alumni who have contributed to the brand's success.

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

"The Livestock and Meat Industry Council is very proud to honor CAB with this year's Don L. Good Impact award," says Craig Good, LMIC president. "I think that it would be difficult to think of an entity that has had a more profound impact on the beef and food industry than CAB and the many people with K-State ties who have had a big part in this success."

Registration and schedule information is available online at www.asi.k-state.edu/familyandfriends. Pre-registration deadline is September 23 and walk-in registration may be limited. For questions about the event, contact Lois Schreiner at 785-532-1267 or lschrein@ksu.edu.
