Metro State inaugurates new president


Marjorie Otto/ Review One of the first things new Metropolitan State University president Virginia Arthur put up in her office was a blanket given to her by Native American elders, pictured behind her. She said it was given to her last spring, after she was named president, during a White Buffalo Woman Ceremony. She said she was wrapped in the blanket and individuals came up to give her good wishes. “It has a lot of meaning,” she said. Arthur is the university’s seventh president, and said she looks to continue the institution’s involvement in the Dayton’s Bluff neighborhood.
