Lee Borck will give a presentation on the pathway to entrepreneurial success

‘Beefing Up Your Future’ to be Presented at K-State April 28       

Looking to bridge the gap between agriculture and consumers, the Kansas State University student organization, Food for Thought, presents the Upson Lecture Series on Monday, April 28, at 7 p.m. This edition of the lecture series will host Kansas State University alumnus and entrepreneur Lee Borck. He will address the K-State and Manhattan communities in Frick Auditorium, located in Mosier Hall of the College of Veterinary Medicine.

Borck will focus his message on challenges facing young people today and how agriculture played a role in his success as an entrepreneur. “Beefing Up Your Future” will be free and open to the public.

A 1970 graduate of K-State, Borck earned a degree in agricultural economics. He has served as president of the Kansas Livestock Association and a member of the board of directors for the K-State Foundation. Along with his heavy involvement with K-State and agriculture, he also is in such business ventures as American State Bank in Great Bend, Kan.

Through his endeavors, Borck has come to understand the importance of hard work, building strong personal relationships and maintaining an entrepreneurial spirit. This lecture will focus on being successful in these three attributes, as well as the importance of agriculture in his career. His message relates to students, faculty and community members, whether they are striving for success in future careers or determining their next business ventures.

The Upson Lecture Series honors Dan Upson, who taught at K-State’s College of Veterinary medicine for 35 years before retiring in 1994.
