Inauguration Day…2-10-12…

A big day at the university as Stephen E. Thorsett became the 25th president of Willamette University.  Susan and I got there early to get a seat…

and the auditorium and the stage slowly filled with flags and scholars until Chaplain Charlie Wallace began with an invocation…

Many scholars and students, university presidents and tribal members, faculty and staff, friends all, gave the new president, Stephen E. Thorsett, lots of advice and plenty to think about in the year ahead…(he is in the crimson robe)…

while outgoing president Lee Pelton and former president Jerry Hudson were there to witness the occasion…

after songs and flags and good wishes, we took a peek at the campus all lit up for the festive occasion, including these small lights on rocks midstream…(I REALLY wish I had been there to see persons in waders or small canoes…!)

and a beautiful sunset…
