Eight students attend MANRRS national meeting in Kansas

Submitted by Jason Owens, owens.1132@osu.edu

Students of the MANRRS (Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Related Sciences) chapter that Dr. Boone established in 2017 at ATI joined their counterparts from Columbus (under advisor Pamela Thomas) at MANRRS annual convention in Overland Park, KS April 4-7. They engaged inspiring professionals and up-and-coming peers in their future fields in the exhibit hall, in mock interviews and at lunch & learns. Too many snow days kept co-advisor Dr. Subbu Kumarappan from attending and presenting, so co-advisor Dr. Jason Owens shepherded the van to the Great Plains, where he met speakers he hopes to bring to OSU Wooster. 

 Students visited St. Louis' Gateway Arch and the adjacent Old Court House, site of the infamous Dred Scott decision.
