St. Louis – Deborah Solie presented on Peru State College’s sesquicentennial planning at the CASE (Council for Advancement and Support of Education) District VI Conference. The presentation, “Budgeting Legacy: A Sesquicentennial of Affordability,” was developed by Solie, director of alumni relations and annual giving, and Jason Hogue, director of marketing and communication.
“This was a unique opportunity to present on Peru State College’s 150th anniversary to colleagues from universities and colleges throughout the region,” said Solie. “We are proud of the engagement we have seen as we celebrate the anniversary of the oldest college in Nebraska.”
Solie and Hogue planned many events, along with a sesquicentennial planning committee, throughout 2017 to engage alumni, faculty, staff, students and the community with Peru State College.
The presentation at CASE included discussion of PSC long range plans like history book writing, painting commissions and reunions that were combined with more event planning, speaker invitations and advertising. As the presentation description noted, the goal was to “craft a legacy worthy of the thousands of faculty, staff and alumni that have walked the hills of old Peru.”
