CSC President Dr. Randy Rhine inauguration today

The formal inauguration of Dr Randy Rhine as president of Chadron State College is this afternoon at 3:00 in Memorial Hall, but the celebration got underway last night with a student-faculty-staff BBQ and a packed-house concert in the Nelson Physical Activity Center by country star Keith Anderson.

While Rhine says he's honored and humbled to be the center of attention with the inauguration, he feels the ceremony and accompanying events are more a celebration of Chadron State and its history than of him.

The inauguration ceremony is free and open to the public,

There's a free reception after the ceremony in Old Admin, the first building on campus and recipient of a multi-million dollar upgrade just a couple years ago.

Inauguration Committee co-chair Karen Pope says the public is being encouraged to take advantage of free tours and displays of student and faculty projects being offered as part of the reception.

Dr. Rhine is CSC's 11th preisdent.
