The event will take place Saturday, August 4, at DePauw's Memorial Student Union Building.

Keynote speakers will be Jinsie Bingham, a member of DePauw's Class of 1956 who serves on the museum's board and as a Greencastle City Councillor, and Steve Setchell, a 1996 DePauw graduate who serves as a major gifts officer in the University's advancement office.

"Our celebration will look back on where and how we started, where we have been -- with a special remembrance of our dedicated volunteer, benefactor and friend, Judge Sally H. Gray -- and where we hope to be in the future," Patty McCastle, co-chair of the event, tells the Banner-Graphic. "We look forward to sharing fond memories of our past and our aspirations for the future."
