Upson Lecture Series for Fall 2014
MANHATTAN, Kan.– Bruce Vincent will speak at K-State’s Forum Hall Monday Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. for Food for Thought’s Upson Lecture Series. Vincent’s presentation is titled “With Vision There Is Hope – How NOT to be the career of last choice.”
Vincent will discuss the importance of careers that involve “getting your hands dirty,” and the thought process and attitude behind producing goods that stimulate the economy and create a healthy environment.
A third-generation logger from Montana, Vincent will bring his thoughts on how an intelligent work force is needed to raise and produce the products that feed, clothe and shelter humanity.
Through his many endeavors, which include testifying on natural resource issues before Congress, appearing on news programs such as “60 Minutes” and giving motivational speeches across the country, Vincent brings a perspective on how to lead, not fight, the discussion over our nation’s environmental health.
The event is open to the K-State and local community. Admission is free.
Food For Thought, a group of current and former Kansas State University students, is a grassroots organization with the mission of bridging the information gap between the two percent of the American population who produce food and the everyday consumer.
