Due to the generosity of a local family of alumni, California State University, Bakersfield had the distinct pleasure, late yesterday afternoon, to launch the CSUB marquee. The marquee has been donated by the Dean and Adah Gay family who understand the importance of communicating University information to the local community.
The CSUB electronic marquee is an integral part of the university's communications and marketing efforts, and will be used to announce and promote key university messages and activities to a broad external audience. Its location at the northern most point of the CSUB campus on Stockdale Highway gives the marquee optimal exposure.
When asked about their choice for the gift, David Gay stated, "Both Dean and Adah, our parents, were teachers at Standard School who highly valued education. Our family is pleased to honor them and give back to the community and especially CSUB. We hope this marquee will encourage the community to become more involved with the University."
The University values the Gay family for their continued support and for making this remarkable addition to our campus a reality. "This marquee offers an immediate avenue for us to communicate with the public in an effective and efficient manner. We are extremely pleased to accept this amazing gift," states Beverly Byl, Vice President for University Advancement/Executive Director CSUB Foundation.
