“Finally, I would like to offer congratulations to Emeritus Trustee and State Sen. Roger Madigan, whose hard work in the Legislature on behalf of Penn College was noted two weeks ago when the college held a unique groundbreaking ceremony for the Roger and Peggy Madigan Library that will be constructed at the main entrance to Penn College.

“Participants at the event watched through third-floor windows of the Student and Administrative Services Center as the footprint for the building was outlined with a string of lights and a fireworks display commenced. A portrait of Sen. Madigan and his late wife − which will hang in the library upon completion in the summer of 2006 − was unveiled as well.

“Congratulations to Roger on this wonderful recognition.”
