George Washington Carver Legacy Innovation and Leadership Awards Symposium

Submitted by Zelia Wiley

Dr. GWC Symposium Flyer

Happy November from the College of Agriculture/K-State Research and Extension (KSRE) Diversity Programs Office (DPO)! In conjunction with the 2021 K-State Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences (MANRRS) Week November 15-19, the annual Dr. George Washington Carver Legacy Innovation and Leadership Awards Symposium will be taking place. The K-State College of Agriculture, in partnership with Lincoln University (host), Tuskegee University, Iowa State University and Simpson College invite the public to celebrate Dr. Carver’s legacy on November 18, at 11:30 a.m. The event will be virtual; please register prior to the event at https://bit.ly/3q0hVKy.

The Carver symposium will involve a renowned panel speaking on the theme, "Minority Land Loss and Restorative Justice." We will also be recognizing Sanders Barbee, K-State junior in Agricultural Economics and K-State MANRRS Chapter current secretary, as a 2021 Dr. George Washington Carver Legacy and Innovation award recipient during the event. Sanders is a distinguished student as she is highly involved on campus as a DPO Peer Mentor, K-State Food and Ag Policy Fellow, Conservation and Sustainability Fellow for Kansas Grain Sorghum, Vice President of Cat’s Cupboard Ambassadors and she is a Food Security Scholar. We are excited that Sanders will be representing K-State in receiving this distinguished title during the 2021 Dr. George Washington Carver Legacy Innovation and Leadership Awards Symposium on November 18. We hope to see you at the event!
