09/27/2019

(KLZA)-- Former Peru State College president Dr. Jerry Gallentine has died.

Gallentine died in Norton, Kansas at the age of 78.

He served as president of Peru State College from 1982 to 1990.

According to the College’s sesquicentennial history book, Nebraska’s First College: Shaping the Future Since 1867, “Enrollment doubled on Gallentine’s watch, and he was responsible for helping revive the Peru master of education program, which had been dead for more than 20 years.”

Gallentine left Peru State to become president of Western New Mexico University, before serving as University President and CEO of National American University for more than twenty years.

Funeral services for Dr. Jerry Gallentine will be  at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28, at the Enfield Funeral Home in Norton, Kansas.
