Students and faculty will dedicate the centennial time capsule at 11 a.m. today at the flag plaza on the Dean’s Green.

Students and members of the public are invited to attend and witness the dedication and speech by Con Marshall, Chadron State College’s former director of information services and sports information. Marshall authored books for Chadron’s 75th and 100th anniversaries, and worked 36 years for the school, ending in 2007.

In an interview preceding the event, Marshall said his speech is on the theme of Chadron State being a place of opportunity.

Marshall plans on sharing the brief histories of influential CSC grads, and said, “I can’t predict what’s in the future, but there are things we can learn from in the past.”

Tiffani Roelle, head of the time capsule committee said the dedication brings closure to the centennial school year. Roelle toured Chadron last April, when she asked her ambassador if the school had a time capsule. After learning leadership for the project was needed, Roelle brought her enthusiasm for preserving the past into CSC’s centennial celebration. She said of the capsule, “This vessel of the past is a lifeline to the future.”

Owing to a plaque design error, the capsule will not be interred until summer. The capsule will be sealed and capstoned over when workers install the dedication plaque.
