Agricultural Economics Names Jay Armstrong 2023 Distinguished Alumni
Kansas Ag Connection - 09/22/2023

The agricultural economics department has named Jay Armstrong the 2023 Distinguished Alumni. He is a fourth-generation farmer near Muscotah, where he grows wheat, corn and soybeans.

Armstrong earned his bachelor's degree in agricultural economics from Kansas State University and also participated in agribusiness seminars at the Harvard Business School.

When he came to K-State in 1971, he had not decided on a major, but he knew he planned to return to the family farm and wanted to study something that would help on the farm.

"I liked the courses I took in production analysis and ag policy, so I signed up for agricultural economics," Armstrong said. "Looking back, my agricultural economics education wasn't just study and get a piece of paper — it was studying and networking throughout my whole life."
