After a reception, dinner, and performance by SDSU music students at the SDSU Parma Payne Goodall Alumni Center, Mayor Jerry Sanders made his remarks and the Webers spoke.

At the close of the evening, there was a surprise gift announcement. Local philanthropist Darlene Shiley pledged $6 million to the college in honor of the departing president.
