Notes from the SIS 50th Anniversary Celebration

The School of Information Sciences 50th Anniversary Event on Friday, September 8, was a celebration filled with music, history, and appreciation for students, alumni, and faculty. The event featured a ceremony honoring award and scholarship recipients, as well as student organization officers. Incoming Dean Dr. Jon Cawthorne was welcomed and outgoing Dean Dr. Sandy Yee was celebrated for her leadership of the WSU Library System. Kim Schroeder gave an overview of the history of the School and shared documents and photos highlight the program history. The music of Detroit icon Melvin Davis and his band filled the room, with star vocalist Pat Lewis singing as attendees danced the night away.
