The Michigan State University Block and Bridle Club honored Ken Geuns at its annual Recognition Banquet March 24 at the Walnut Hills Golf Course in East Lansing. The club recognized Ken for his contributions of service and education to the students of MSU. Ken has been a highly regarded Extension specialist in the Department of Animal Science for more than 33 years.
Ken guest lectures in seven courses at MSU. He assists with the preparation of several livestock judging teams at the 4-H, FFA and collegiate levels, and he has been adviser to the MSU Block and Bridle Club for nine years.
Kids who arrive as students at MSU see a familiar face in Ken who coordinates 4-H workshops and events as livestock and vet science youth Extension specialist. He’s someone they can go to for expert advice to avoid the pitfalls of hosting large events such as the annual Junior Show at Beef Expo and the Block and Bridle Club Sheep Show.
Student Stacey Choate, public relations officer for the club, reported that, “Ken has been very helpful and so easygoing and understanding. He definitely puts the students first.”
The Block and Bridle Club provides members an opportunity to promote agriculture and forge new relationships through multiple livestock, social and community service events. The club promotes a high scholastic standard among its members.
Congratulations to Ken for his many years of dedicated service and this very well-deserved recognition.
