ASM Club tours ADM Facilities

Thanks to the work of ASM Club president, Evan Guckien and ADM, 45 ASM Club students toured two of the ADM gulf facilities near New Orleans, LA over the winter break.  They left at midnight on January 4th and arrived back on campus ABE at 4 am on the 7th.  ADM paid all of the bus and hotel expenses, along with some of the food expense.  They toured the Destrehan and shipyard facilities and met several ADM representatives.  The ASM Club would like to send Evan and ADM many thanks!
