Fall Road Scholars tour departs Oct. 1 for southeast Iowa

by Anne Krapfl
About 45 Iowa State new staff and faculty, including provost Rollin Richmond, are joining President Martin Jischke on the fall 1999 Road Scholars tour Oct. 1-2.

The group will head to southeast Iowa this time, with stops in Knoxville, Oskaloosa, Drakesville, Bentonsport, Fairfield, Ollie, Sigourney, Pella and Keosauqua. Group members will visit a high school, private colleges, an Amish saw mill, family hog farm and a manufacturing plant. They also will visit with local economic development people in several communities.

Iowa State began the Road Scholars tour series in fall 1992 as a way to introduce new faculty and staff to the state and to Iowans. ISU Extension staff help schedule stops and serve as local tour guides along the route; the trips are coordinated by the Office of the Vice President for External Affairs. Typically, there are Road Scholars tours during October and April.
