Templeton Rye President to Speak at UI
Scott Bush, president of Iowa-based Templeton Rye Spirits, will talk about his business and the phenomenon it has spawned in recent years when he comes to the University of Iowa’s Tippie College of Business this week.
Bush, a 1996 UI graduate, will speak on Friday, Feb. 24 at 11:30 a.m. in room S401 in the Pappajohn Business Building. Admission is free and open to the public.
Bush's great-grandfather Frank Schroeder was a farmer near Templeton, Iowa, who made rye whiskey to make extra money and keep his farm during the 1920s Dust Bowl and 1930s Great Depression. Bush left a career in banking and venture capital to resurrect the brand in 2001.
