Founders Day Celebration


President Stan L. Albrecht and Chancellor Joe Peterson named six people to be honored at Utah State University Eastern’s Founders Day on Friday, March 4, in the Jennifer Leavitt Student Center Grand Ballroom starting with a 5:30 p.m. reception.
Honorees include Edward Salzetti who will be presented with the Gold Circle Donor Award; Jan Young and Larry Severeid, the “Upon Their Shoulder’s Award;” and Kirk Sitterud, the Lifetime Achievement Award.
April Hatch Cooper will be inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame while Chris Ashton receives the Outstanding Alumnus Award.
Reservations can be made online at www.usu.edu/foundersday, [email protected]; or call 435.613.5664.
The celebration of Founders Day is in commemoration of USU’s “One University” system with the regional campuses, Eastern and Logan campus each celebrating the same night.
According to USU, “our founding mission challenged us to provide access and opportunity for students in every corner of the state, and we truly have become one university with regional campuses dispersed throughout Utah. We are extremely proud of our statewide role, so we will honor that ideal with a concerted effort highlighting the breadth of our successes.
“Celebrations will take place the same night at our regional campuses, which will join the Logan festivities via live video broadcast.”
