Kentucky State University to Welcome the Community at Inaugural Ag Roundup
The Kentucky State University School of Agriculture, Communities, and the Environment is hosting the inaugural Ag Roundup tomorrow, Thursday, September 7th.
The Ag Roundup is an opportunity for current students, future students, businesses and leaders in the agriculture industry, alumni, and the broader Frankfort community to connect. “Anyone who touches agriculture in the commonwealth” is encouraged to attend, said Dr. Marcus Bernard, chair of the School of Agriculture, Communities, and the Environment.
The day’s activities begin with a Roundtable Discussion featuring representatives from governmental organizations and companies involved in the agricultural industry. The Roundtable begins at 9 a.m. in the Bradford Hall auditorium.
From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., businesses, farmers, organizations, and Kentucky State personnel will set up exhibits along the Yellow Brick Road. Everyone is invited to network with vendors and sponsors, as well as join Kentucky State for a sponsored lunch.
“I’m excited about the inaugural Ag Roundup because of the impact that KSU has across the Commonwealth and the opportunities in agriculture and its related sciences for students,” said Dr. Bernard.
