Area residents are invited to attend the unveiling of the sign marking one corner of the property, taking place at the intersection of W 30 Drive and CO 641 Avenue, Alton, at 11 a.m. University representatives attending the event include John Floros, dean of the College of Agriculture and director of K-State Research and Extension; Gary Pierzynski, university distinguished professor and head of the agronomy department; and Bob Gillen, director of the Western Kansas Agricultural Research Centers.
