Branson Launches Centennial Year Celebration

Branson's Centennial year celebration launched on Wednesday morning, February 12 with a special Assembly for current Branson students, faculty, and staff. The program included remarks by Chris Mazzola, reminiscences by alumnae Sally Grover Bingham '59 and Robyn Sue Fisher '97, a photographic history of Branson presented by Lori Deibel, the introduction of 100 Acts of Branson, and a new "Centennial Crisp" ice cream flavor created for Branson by Fisher's Smitten Ice Cream. For the finale, blue and green balloons cascaded over bleachers as the gym reverberated with the singing of "Happy Birthday to Branson."

2020 promises to be an exciting year, with many special events planned to celebrate this historic milestone. See the calendar of events.
