Lincoln (Neb.) - May 6, 1998 - Peg Blake, associate vice chancellor of student affairs and director of admissions at the University Nebraska has resigned to become vice president for student affairs at Idaho's 15,000-student Boise State University. Her last day at Nebraska will be June 12.
The move coincides with a new job for her husband, Larry Blake, who will be director of facilities planning at Boise State. Larry Blake has been acting manager of architectural and engineering services for the past year and prior to that had served as assistant manager of projects with facilities management and planning at NU for four years. Both Blakes begin their new jobs July 1.
"I have received tremendous support here. I have close friends, colleagues and family in Nebraska," said Peg Blake, who has been at the university for 12 years. "But the opportunities for both (of us) combined to make this an offer we couldn't refuse."
"For more than a decade, Peg has been a key leader in the division of student affairs," said James Griesen, vice chancellor for student affairs. "She has a broad understanding of the university environment, knows how to efficiently organize work efforts and is one of the best human resources managers I have ever observed. She will certainly be missed by NU students, staff and faculty."
Larry Routh, director of career services, has been named
interim assistant vice chancellor for student affairs and interim
director of admissions. Geri Cotter, assistant director of career
services, will be interim director of career services.
