UNION, N.J. – –The seventh annual Kean University Gala will be held on Wednesday, May 26, at 6:30 p.m. at Mayfair Farms in West Orange, N.J. The guest of honor, Robert H. Busch, will be recognized for his leadership and dedication as chairman of the Kean University Foundation Board of Directors, as well as for his community service as president, chief executive officer and owner of ALL-STATE LEGAL in Cranford, N.J.

In addition, Busch was the conference chairman of the national Engraved Stationery Manufacturers Association’s annual meeting for three years and served as business instructor for Junior Achievement’s Project Business, as well as for “CHOICES,” a program devoted to reducing drop-out rates at inner-city schools for a number of years. Busch has also promoted ongoing internship studies at his company in the graphic-arts field for high schools and colleges in Union County.

Chair of the Kean University Foundation Board of Directors since June 2000, Busch is also the founder of the Harry Busch Unrestricted Endowment at Kean, as well as a contributor to the University both personally and through ALL-STATE International, including the annual printing costs for the Kean Gala.
