On August 15 Kay Gross stepped down from her position as KBS director after 14 years of service (and over 30 years at KBS total). She will continue as KBS faculty for two more years before fully retiring.
Under her guidance, students have had life-changing academic and research experiences; teachers have improved skills to teach science; faculty members have continued to conduct groundbreaking research (including her); and thousands of public and private events have occurred.
In 2005 Kay helped create Dessert with Discussion (DwD) as an outreach event to share MSU/KBS research with the local community. To date, 27 DwD events have been hosted by Kay. DwD has changed and grown, becoming a signature event in the community, often overflowing the capacity of the Auditorium!
Please consider making a gift to support Dessert with Discussion, honoring Kay, her accomplishments and years of dedication to the KBS, MSU and Gull Lake communities. Thank you!
With your help, individual strength becomes collective power – the power to lead a new generation beyond today’s challenges towards the discoveries of tomorrow. KBS is where students, faculty, and researchers will make seemingly impossible ideas possible and turn dreams into reality.
KBS offers a variety of giving opportunities to support students, faculty, programs and facilities. With your support, we will remain at the forefront of biological and ecological discoveries. Thank you!
