Krista Rodin, associate vice president and campus executive officer of NAU-Yuma, and Nick Lund, who served as executive director of NAU-Yuma for 11 years, helped kick off the campus’ 20th anniversary celebration at a community block party on Feb. 22.

“The support we’ve received from the Yuma area over the past 20 years is nothing short of phenomenal, and we are looking forward to the next 20 years,” Rodin said.
