LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto has named a committee to plan festivities marking the university's sesquicentennial.
The university will mark the 150th anniversary of its establishment on Feb. 22, 2015.
The university says the committee's work will include planning a university-wide recognition and celebration in 2015, events and activities leading up to the sesquicentennial, an educational component to expand awareness of UK's history and mission and special recognition and development opportunities for investment in the university.
The committee is being led by chairmen Mike Richey, the vice president of development, and Deirdre Scaggs, the associate dean of special collections at UK libraries.
