TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - It's official, Indiana State University has its 12th president.
On Friday, the university inaugurated Dr. Deborah Curtis.
She's the school's first-ever female president.
She received her official medallion and addressed the campus.
Students and faculty who were in the crowd say it was a great, historic celebration.
"Well, we don't always inaugurate a female president. So this is a very special occasion. This is our 12th president, who happens to be a woman. So I'm really looking forward to working with her," ISU Academic Advisor Hope Williams said.
Dr. Curtis replaced Daniel Bradley as the school's president.
