Attendees perused the giveaways at the Ag Alumni Association's 2015 Homecoming tailgate in the Hearnes Center Fieldhouse.
Alumnus Roger Gardner, chief cultural and communications officer, Learfield Sports, was recognized at the Steak Fry held in conjunction with Tiger Ag Classic Sept. 18, as a 2015 Citation of Merit winner from the Ag Alumni Association. Gardner was not able to attend Celebration of Excellence in April, so the award was made just last month. Presenting the honor to Gardner is J.D. Manning, chair of the Ag Alumni Association Awards Committee.
Tiger Ag Classic had the biggest turnout ever this year! A record 37 teams took to the course at L.A. Nickell Friday, Sept. 18. The team pictured here included (from left) Brett Begemann, alumnus and President and Chief Operating Officer at Monsanto; Vice Chancellor and Dean Tom Payne; Applied Social Sciences Instructor Linda Sowers; and UM System President Tim Wolfe. Organizers hope the increased turnout led to increased funds to help CAFNR students!
Alumna Whitney Kinne, assistant director of CAFNR Career Services, shows off the tickets she won to the recent MU vs. South Carolina football game (and her MU spirit)! Kinne attended the MU Ag Alumni Association event at the State Fair Aug. 15, along with more than 300 other alumni and friends of CAFNR.
