Palm Beach State College received a special proclamation recognizing its 90th anniversary from the Village of Tequesta during a village council meeting April 13.

Accepting the honor on behalf of the College was Palm Beach Gardens Provost Dr. Tracy Pellett and former chair and member of the District Board of Trustees Wendy Sartory Link.

“On behalf of President Parker, we thank you,” said Pellett during the meeting. “We know knowledge is power. Certainly, PBSC has been bestowing that for many years. We thank you Mayor Molly and all the council members for issuing this proclamation for PBSC in honor and in celebration of our 90th anniversary.”

Joining Pellett and Link were Susan Del Portal, external affairs manager; Deborah Gordon, director, Corporate and Continuing Education; Matthew Lenihan, business and community relations director; Jyrece McClendon, interim dean of academic affairs; and Albert Colom, business and education development partner.

The proclamation was read aloud by Village of Tequesta clerk Lori McWilliams. Pellett also shared with council members facts about the College and also thanked them for their collaboration over the years and the work they do in making the country and community better.

Other proclamations will be presented recognizing PBSC’s historic anniversary from the Town of Lake Park April 19 and from the city of Palm Beach Gardens May 4.

Throughout the year, PBSC will celebrate its 90th anniversary milestone with activities such as campus celebrations, open houses, innovation initiatives and capital projects. Stories will spotlight the achievements of alumni, students, faculty, staff and community partners on the College’s website. Social media posts and special events will use the hashtag #PBSC90th.
