MANHATTAN — Wes Bush, CEO of Northrop Grumman, will deliver a Landon Lecture at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 6, in McCain Auditorium at Kansas State University. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Bush was named chief executive officer and president in January 2010. Additionally, he serves on the board of directors for Norfolk Southern Corp., Aerospace Industries Association, Business-Higher Education Forum, Conservation International and the U.S. Naval Academy Foundation.
