Momper honored as trustee emeritus

It marked the end of a 16-year stint on the board for the Fort Wayne resident. His time saw three separate Indiana Governors and achievements like a new geothermal heating and cooling system, launching the village revitalization project and selecting the university’s 17th president, Geoffrey Mearns in 2017, where Momper chaired the search committee. “Wow, I’ve been thinking about this day for a long time,” Momper said. “It’s really an honor to serve on this board the last 16 years… it was a lot of hard work, as you all know, but it was so fulfilling, the opportunity to work with you, my fellow trustees, and all you, the Ball State family. It’s just unbelievable. It’s [an opportunity] I’ll never forget.”
