“There’s an authenticity about MSU that I haven’t felt other places I’ve been,” Ron Hendrick tells Michigan State University President Lou Anna K. Simon and Spartans Athletic Director Mark Hollis on MSU Today. Hendrick is an alumnus and has returned to his alma mater to be dean of MSU’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
“Clearly the campus has undergone a lot of transformations, but it’s good to see the core values that make the place so special the same.”
Hendrick says today’s CANR is very diverse, containing both microbiologists and interior designers in the same college.
“It’s that great diversity that, in part, attracted me back here.”
Then Spartans Baseball Coach Jake Boss joins President Simon and AD Hollis for the trio’s annual conversation.
Boss says he’s proud of the young men he’s developing in the MSU baseball program.
And he details the 2017 First Pitch Dinner. The 12th annual event will take place on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2017 at the Kellogg Center in East Lansing.
This year’s event will feature World Series champion Jack Morris as the keynote speaker, while also recognizing another World Series champion pitcher, Spartan alum Mark Mulder as MSU will honor his number.
Details on the torrid pace of hiring for college graduates, too.
