President Burmaster’s investiture Sept. 27


The public is invited to a community celebration of the investiture of Elizabeth Burmaster as president of Nicolet College.

The event will take place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 27, in the Nicolet College Theatre on the college’s Rhinelander campus.

Burmaster is the fifth president of Nicolet in the college’s 42-year history.

“I am honored and excited to have been selected as Nicolet president and look forward to serving the residents of the Northwoods,” Burmaster said. “I would like to personally extend an invitation to everyone in the Nicolet district to attend the event, which marks the beginning of the next chapter in the rich history of Nicolet College.”

A short investiture ceremony will begin at 1 p.m., immediately followed by refreshments, entertainment by local musicians, and the Green Bay Packers game scheduled to air on the screen in the Nicolet College Theatre.

Burmaster comes to Nicolet after serving eight years as State Superintendent of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. During that time she also served as a member of the Wisconsin Technical College System Board and the University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents.

The investiture ceremony is being sponsored by the Nicolet College Foundation and the Nicolet College Board of Trustees. Those planning on attending are asked to call Nicolet College at (715) 365-4415 by Wednesday, Sept. 16.

The Nicolet College Theatre is located in the Learning Resources Center on the Rhinelander campus, one mile south of the city just off of Hwy. G.
