(Neb)-CSC Homecoming Hits Peak
CHADRON - Homecoming Week at Chadron State College culminates this afternoon at 1:00 with the Homecoming football game between the Eagles and Colorado Mesa University, but there are a number of other events before then.
Up first is an Alumni Coffee & Registration from 8-9:00 in Student Center Lobby, followed by the Homecoming Parade at 9:30 This year's theme is "Color the Town" with new State College System Chancellor Paul Turman the Grand Marshal. Jeremy Anderson and Laure Sinn will describe the parade on KCSR.
After the parade at 11:00 is the Homecoming Luncheon in the Student Center Ballroom. Being recognized as this year's recipients of the Distinguished Young Alumni Award Dr Dan Connealy and Dr Kendra Schmid, and the Distinguished Alumni Award, Dr Angela Brennan and Nebraska Supreme Court Justice John Freudenberg.
Also being honored will be the members of this year's Family Tree honorees. The Katen, Neuharth, and Waggener families have each had at least 3 generations attend Chadron State.
The final Homecoming events will be dinners for this year's reunion classes, all tentative scheduled for 6:00, but there is an event not officially part of Homecoming that begins before the end of the football game - an artists' reception from 3:30-5:00 in the Sandoz Center for the Sand In Our Art exhibit.
CSC professor Trudy Denham is featured with what she calls "dirt rugs," large pieces of floor art in which she applied top soil to a base layer of sand in a manner that creates the illusion of an ornamental rug.
Professional photographer and former longtime Chadron community leader Linda Teahon is showing a number of her pictures, all reflecting the ranching lifestyle of the Sandhills - where she now lives. The Sand in Our Art exhibit runs through Oct 25 in the Sandoz Center.
