Pacific Lutheran Says Goodbye to President Loren Anderson
After Bruce Bjerke '72, chair of the Board of Regents at Pacific Lutheran University, praised the Andersons for their long service to the university - noting that during President Anderson's tenure PLU has seen the creation of five endowed chairs and professorships, a healthy endowment of $75 million and the recent completion of a capital campaign that topped $120 million - he had a surprise in store. Bjerke turned to assistant professor Spencer Ebbinga, who unveiled a bronze bust of Anderson. The bust will have a new home in the newly renamed Loren and MaryAnn Anderson University Center.
