The WKU College and Educational and Behavioral Sciences will proudly present the 2014 Mary E. Hensley Lecture on September 9, featuring Bronx teacher and administrator Stephen Ritz, founder of the Green Bronx Machine.

What started out as a science project in his classroom became a massive community-based agriculture initiative in which Ritz’s students have grown over 30,000 pounds of vegetables feeding over 450 students and their families. Ritz’s efforts have helped student attendance skyrocket and created 2,200 youth jobs.

Watch Ritz share his story in this TED Talk here.

Stephen Ritz will speak at 7:00 p.m. on September 9 in Van Meter Auditorium on WKU’s Main Campus. The event is free and open to the public. Educators, parents, and the community are encouraged to attend.
