Join College for 150th kickoff celebration on Thursday

Dean Debbie Mercer invites all alumni and friends of the College of Education to Kansas State University’s 150th anniversary celebration.

The Sesquicentennial Kickoff and Grand Exhibition is Thursday, Feb. 14th from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Ahearn Field House. Spend Valentine’s Day with people who share your love of K-State!

Judy Hughey will host the College of Education display from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., David Griffin from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., and Dean Mercer from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

As part of the celebration, the College is creating an electronic anthology – a dynamic collaboration using inspiring interviews, interactive activities and historical research – that will contain at least four areas such as the History of the College, Circles of Influence, Slates to iPADS, the History of Technology in Education, and interviews with key figures in education.

In addition, Dean Mercer and literacy researcher Lotta Larson have written a children’s alphabet book tentatively titled “K-State: An Alphabet Journey Across Campus.” There will also be themed brown bag luncheons throughout the anniversary celebration.
