President Blackhurst Inauguration
Dr. Anne Blackhurst became the 11th president of Minnesota State University Moorhead on July 1, 2014. The theme of President Anne Blackhurst’s inauguration — Leading for the Long Run — is inspired by Dr. Blackhurst’s passion for long-distance running. On September 24th, she ran 50 laps around the Nemzek Field in order to raise money for scholarships. She also personally pledged $1,000 per lap! The donation amount earned was above the goal of $1,200,000!
Her Installation Ceremony is Friday, September 26, 2014 at 2:00 p.m., Roland Dille Center for the Arts, Hansen Theatre at the Minnesota State University Moorhead. There will be a reception shortly after at 3:30 p.m. in the Center for the Arts Gallery.
You can also get a chance to catch sight of President Blackhurst Saturday, September 27th at homecoming events. These include the Homecoming Parade at 11 a.m., The Dragon Zone Tailgate Party at 11:30-2 p.m., Dragon Soccer at noon, Dragon Football at 2 p.m., and Dragon Volleyball at 5 p.m.
