Branting’s talk with start at 3:30 p.m. in Room 112 of Sacajawea Hall on the LCSC campus.

The college, which was founded in 1893, has planned events throughout the year to honor its 125th anniversary.

Branting will discuss how early Lewiston was a town known for its sporting activities. The college’s site was actually a premier baseball and football field before the city deeded the land to build the college.  Branting will cover how the college emphasized physical activity as part of the student experience throughout its early history, which made for a natural relationship between the community and the college athletics.
