Department of Geography Alumni Kevin Hunt will be visiting the University of Missouri campus as a guest speaker at Parker Auditorium (Room 102) in Stewart Hall at 3 p.m. Oct. 11. His talk will focus on the significant role geospatial science holds across mission areas in federal government. The public is welcome.

Metered parking is located on the north side of Stewart Hall at 1114 University Ave, which is behind Waters Hall just south of University Avenue. It is also offered on the top floor of the Hitt Street Parking Structure off Hitt Street, north of University Avenue.

Hunt, a 2007 BA and 2009 MA geography graduate, will return for Mizzou Homecoming to share his experience supporting research in both federal and local governments. He has spent a decade as a geographer assisting statisticians and economists within the Department of Agriculture in Washington D.C. On Sept. 1, Hunt started a new job as research geographer with the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Services, also in D.C.

“We are proud of all our alums,” department chair Soren Larsen said, “but Kevin has excelled beyond expectations in his career as a geographer in the federal government. Our current students will benefit immensely from the experience and insight he will share while he’s back on campus.”

He will also be attending Homecoming activities for students, faculty and alumni of the Geography Department, as well meet with students and faculty for one-on-one conversations. For more information, contact the geography department at 573-882-8370.
