Purdue Ag Fish Fry - Saturday, February 2, 2019

The Deans are back…for one Fish Fry Only!

Purdue Agriculture is pleased to feature a reunion of Ag Deans as the program at the 2019 Purdue Ag Alumni Fish Fry. Please join us for this annual meeting of the Purdue Ag Alumni Association on February 2, 2019 at the Elements Financial Blue Ribbon Pavilion at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis.

The featured speakers will be four former deans of the Purdue College of Agriculture, as well as the current Glenn W. Sample Dean of Agriculture, Karen Plaut. The past deans include Robert Thompson (1987-1993), Vic Lechtenberg (1993-2004), Randy Woodson (2004-2008) and Jay Akridge (2008-2017). The program will be moderated by farm broadcaster and long-time friend of Purdue Agriculture, Max Armstrong.

Doors open at 10:00 a.m., allowing guests to network and visit the exhibits along Purdue Agriculture Avenue, where you can connect with our sponsors, department faculty, staff, and student organizations for up to 90 minutes prior to the Fish Fry. We will also be honoring the Certificate of Distinction winners during the annual meeting portion of the program. It’s sure to be a great afternoon full of Purdue Pride!
