By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- Washburn University President Jerry Farley is celebrating a major milestone.

On July 1,1997, Farley was inaugurated as Washburn's 16th President.
Since then nine buildings have been constructed or renovated, one moved to campus, and Yager Stadium at Moore Bowl has been spruced up.

And a little fun fact, Farley who is now known for his bow ties started wearing them because an article said," anyone could find him since he is wearing a bow tie."

Farley now has about 100 of them.
