Prairie College unveils new signage ahead of 100th anniversary

Prairie College President Mark Maxwell and Finance Director Elaine Maxwell at the Three Hills college’s new campus gateway sign Nov. 5. Paid for by donors and designed by graphic artist and college employee Crystal Gillespie, the sign, said Maxwell, is like a spade in the ground, a way of signalling the college’s 100th birthday celebration (1922–2022). Anticipating as many as 1,000 guests for its mid-July birthday celebration, Prairie is launching an ambitious $100 million, five-year fundraising project that will, as President Maxwell put it, “Give every campus building a facelift or make-over, beginning with the residence.” ECA Review/D.
