SIU event honoring the life of retired Col. Harvey Welch has been postponed

SIU Logo

A tribute event originally scheduled for this week to commemorate the contributions and legacy of SIU alumnus and leader Harvey Welch Jr. has been postponed until a later date.

Representatives of SIU and ROTC are coordinating with Welch’s family to reschedule the event to honor the Centralia native who was the first Black player on the Saluki basketball team in 1951 and SIU’s first Black Air Force ROTC graduate.
