College of Agriculture wins big
It's the golf equivalent of a hole-in-one. The College of Agriculture's annual fund-raising golf tournament was the recipient of a $10,000 gift from Wittmeier Ford and the Ford Motor Company. The tournament, held in late July, netted almost $45,000 for scholarships and other programs in the college. "Agriculture and the university are two entities that help give Chico its unique characteristics," said Ed Wittmeier, owner of Wittmeier Auto Center. "Our gift is to honor the importance of each."
Career Planning and Placement Center receives gifts
Target Corporation and Household International have recruited CSU, Chico students for many years. Both companies recently contributed $3,000 to the Career Planning and Placement Center through the Placement Partners program. Placement Partners provide ongoing support through annual donations. Funds are used for computers and other equipment, as well as new software. "Our relationship with Target and Household International is one that is mutually beneficial. We have provided them with great management candidates over the years, and they have provided some great careers for our Chico grads. Their donations help ensure that our programs remain strong," said Jodie Veale, on-campus recruitment coordinator.
Juri Brilts appointed to arts commission
Juri Brilts, sponsored programs, was appointed CSU, Chico representative for the Chico Arts Commission. Brilts was a board member of the Chico Arts Center for the past three years. Last November, his photography was part of An Homage to Ansel Adams at 100, an exhibition in the Humanities Center Gallery. Brilts is interviewing former students of Ansel Adams at the San Francisco Arts Institute (formerly California School of Fine Arts) for material for a book he plans to write on Adams. Brilts was chief executive officer of the Sacramento Ballet before coming to CSU, Chico 12 years ago.
Masks! Just in time for Halloween
Behind the Mask: Auction! is an exhibition and auction of unique masks created by 40 local artists. Most of the masks are wearable, and they run from beautiful to terrifying; prizes are awarded for best masks. Proceeds from the auction support the University Art Gallery in Taylor Hall. Patrons may view and pre-bid on masks Oct. 811 at the gallery. A reception and silent auction will be held Oct. 11, from 7 to 9 pm. "Last year, the gallery raised $2,500," said gallery curator Jason Tannen. "The auction was a focal point for students, artists, and the community to eat, drink, and be surrounded by some truly creative and fascinating visages."
