AMES, Iowa (May 15, 2019) — The following is a letter from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Student Council at Iowa State University. Kent Corporation supports the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Student Council because Kent believes in supporting the future generation of innovators, who will share Kent’s mission of helping a growing world do more.

Dear Kent Corporation,

On behalf of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Student Council at Iowa State University, I would like to thank you for your sponsorship over the 2018-2019 academic year.

It is because of your generosity that we have been able to host special events for students to learn about the purpose, passion and plethora of opportunities found in the agriculture industry. These events, including CALS Week on Campus, The Freshman/Transfer Barbecue and The National Ag Day Grill Out engaged thousands of Iowa State Students across many disciplines.

We are thankful for Kent Corporation’s partnership in particular, which has played a key role in the success of our organization. As a Cardinal Sponsor, we sincerely hope that you have found as much value in these events as our students have. If you have any input or ideas on how we can further improve the value of our relationship, please do not hesitate to contact our team through the information below!

Finally, please be on the lookout for an email from our team inviting you to consider the benefits of another year of partnership with the Iowa State University CALS Student Council. We would like to thank you again for your continued support and we hope to have you on our team again next year!
