40th Anniversary for Skagit Valley Community Radio
1973 was the year that SVC received its official Federal Communications Commission license to operate a radio station. In 2013, the college and community celebrated 40 years of participation by students, college staff, and area residents in creating and broadcasting radio programs to our valley.
Members of the Board of Trustees of SVC, the College President, staff of KSVR-FM, and campus visitors attended a short ceremony at the radio station offices in George Reeves Hall.
SVC Trustee Debra Lisser, SVC Trustee Lindsey Fiker, Radio Manager Rip Robbins, SVC Trustee John Stevens, SVC President Tom Keegan.
A 2-foot wide chocolate cake with vanilla icing helped sweeten the anniversary!
