Lake Erie College staff member receives “Campus Event Planner of the Year” award
Chosen by America’s top agency for representing all artists in the college market, Travis Rose, coordinator of student activities and cultural programs at Lake Erie College, was presented the “Campus Event Planner of the Year” award by Power Performers on Feb. 1.
Rose was informed in December that he had qualified as one of the top 25 finalists for this award. “I was shocked but very honored and excited to see that I qualified,” said Rose. “Then when I received the letter that I had won the award, I couldn’t believe it.”
Rose received the award mainly for the intense amount of hours and work he spent on planning the very successful Lake Erie College’s 2009 “Turn Back the Clock” Homecoming event. Robert Channing, known as the “World’s Foremost Mind Reader” and motivational speaker and entertainer, was chosen as the performer for Homecoming 2009.
“Travis’s position requires an immense amount of coordination and energy. He is dedicated to providing a quality co-curricular experience that complements the students’ educational experience at Lake Erie College. He is a valued member of the Student Affairs Team,” said Billie Dunn, dean of students.
Power Performers is a speakers and entertainment bureau which provides top motivational speakers, athletes, performers and celebrities for any event. Channing was obtained by Rose through their program that works with over 1,700 college campuses.
