Presidents Return for Sesquicentennial Celebration

As a part of the Truman State University Foundation Banquet weekend in April, a number of festivities took place across campus. The annual event honors donors and the significant impact they have on Truman.

All 17 presidents were recognized during a Sesquicentennial Presidential Celebration. Five of the six living former presidents were in attendance, and all presidents were represented, in many cases by family members.

Troy Paino, the most recent former president, returned for the unveiling of his University portrait, which took place in the Student Union Building Hub. The painting is now on display with the other presidential portraits on the third floor of Pickler Memorial Library.
