Trustee Nordahl Brue ’67 had an idea and termed it “selah,” a Hebrew word for a time to pause and reflect. Brue’s idea was to celebrate the talent and achievement within the College community, to commemorate the fourth rebuilding of Grinnell’s facilities, and to honor retiring President Russell K. Osgood.

Brue hopes to make Selah an annual day of celebration focused on Grinnell’s achievements.Suggestions for future celebrations may be sent to Meg Jones Bair, director of donor relations.
