“In the 10 years we have been in Greencastle, Ivy Tech has introduced two nursing programs, launched an accelerated degree (ASAP) program, established a valuable advisory council and worked closely with businesses and industry to enhance workforce training opportunities,” Ivy Tech Central Indiana Chancellor Kathleen Lee noted.

“We look forward to celebrating our first decade in Greencastle and the many more to come,” added Lee, who will attend the event along with Ivy Tech President Sue Ellspermann.

During “Denim and Diamonds,” guests will be able to explore what the Greencastle campus has to offer, enjoy light hors d’oeuvres and join the college for a toast to its future in the community.
