Alumni in Central Iowa are invited to attend the March 20th event at the Botanical Center and must RSVP by March 13th. The cost is $20 per person. Attire is dressy casual (sport coats for the men, dress or pants suit for the women).

In addition, celebrations open to the public will be held in Kansas City March 5 and on the Northwest campus April 23.

A black-tie gathering for a select group of Dr. and Mrs. Hubbard’s family and friends took place in October at Kansas City’s Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in celebration of their distinguished years of service to Northwest.
