As President Lou Hencken nears the end of his four-decade tenure at Eastern Illinois University, he'd like a chance to visit with people from throughout campus and the surrounding communities.
Therefore, the public is encouraged to stop by and visit with Hencken and his wife, Mary Kay, at the "Celebration of Dedication," set for 3-5 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, in the University Ballroom, MLK Jr. Union.
Refreshments will be provided.
Hencken, a graduate of EIU, has served the university in a variety of administrative positions, rising through the ranks from graduate assistant to president.
In addition to his service to the university, Hencken has also been an active member of the community.
