GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - The University of North Dakota has scheduled a farewell celebration for outgoing Interim President Ed Schafer.

The event is from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Wednesday, in the Gransberg Community Room.

The former UND student, North Dakota governor and U.S. agriculture secretary began leading the Grand Forks school in January, when then-President Robert Kelley retired. Schafer’s last day is June 30.

The state Board of Higher Education in March tabbed former Minnesota Congressman Mark Kennedy to be Kelley’s permanent successor.
