Southeastern unveils centennial logo

Southeastern Oklahoma State University recently unveiled its new logo to celebrate its 100th birthday. The university will use the logo through 2009.

Southeastern Oklahoma State University is continuing to make plans to celebrate its centennial in 2009. University President Dr. Glen D. Johnson recently announced the formation of a Centennial Committee, comprised of University faculty, staff and administrators, alumni and community members.

In addition, a new Southeastern centennial logo, designed by local artist and Alumni Association President Janie Umsted, was recently unveiled. The University will utilize this as the official Southeastern logo through 2009.

“The logo represents a dynamic combination of both the University’s past traditions and its future aspirations,’’ said President Johnson. “We are very pleased to announce the centennial logo to our University stakeholders.’’

The Centennial Committee will meet three to four times a year to direct and review the work of six sub-committees, which include Fundraising, Service, Historical Preservation, Events and Celebrations, Publicity and Media Production, and Mailing, Outreach and Communication.

It is anticipated that three or four major events and one or more Centennial Memorial Projects will be planned to commemorate the first century of Southeastern’s service to the State of Oklahoma and to prepare the University to continue its journey into the 21st century.
