In Memoriam
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Michael Moore. After a brave fight with cancer for many months, Michael passed away peacefully in hospice care. 

After joining the department in January 2011, Michael manged the laboratories for Baking Science I, Baking Science II and Flour and Dough Testing. He was generous with his time, expertise and positive, friendly personality. He will surely be missed by all of us.

For anyone wishing to send cards, Michael and Barbara's address is:  2220 Tamarron Terrace, Manhattan, KS 66502.

No arrangements have been made as of yet, but we will pass along details as soon as we learn of them.
Internship Spotlight
“I've been working in Lenexa at Corbion on the Breads & Rolls RD&A team working on creating marketing samples to show off our breads and rolls team, meat group and sweet/savory team! Like a fajita kit with the tortilla component, the meat component and the sauce component, for example. I love being able to be creative and apply what I've learned about baking!”
