BAKER CITY, Ore. July 27, 2016 – Eastern Oregon University’s Board of Trustees is hosting a public reception at the Crossroads Carnegie Art Center, 2020 Auburn Ave., from 4:30-6 p.m. Wednesday, August 10.
Complimentary refreshments will be served.
Board members will be in Baker for a two-day retreat at the Geiser Grand Hotel, in part to discuss future goals for the university. Wednesday’s reception is an opportunity for the community to speak with individual trustees, learn more about new initiatives and ask questions.
“We are eager to meet with people in Baker County including alumni, community leaders and educators,” said Cheryl Martin, EOU trustee from North Powder. “Having the opportunity to listen to and learn what aspects of higher education are important to them is a vital role of the board.”
David Nelson, board chair, and Tom Insko, EOU president, will also be attending the event.
Martin was appointed as an EOU trustee in 2014. A retired teacher with 27 years of experience, she now serves on the advisory board for the North Powder Agriculture Program and the Oregon Cattlemen’s Association governing board. She is also the current president of the Baker County Chamber of Commerce, and together with her husband Curtis, owns and operates VP Ranch.
