Alumni Association celebrates MVD office opening

Old Main MVD ribbon cutting

The Alumni Association hosted a successful ribbon-cutting event Aug. 24 to celebrate the opening of Old Main as an authorized third-party plate provider by the state's Motor Vehicle Division.

Now, Arizona State University sells personalized and non-personalized ASU collegiate license plates, also known as Sparky plates, in the Old Main building on the Tempe campus.

The event included remarks from Jenny Holsman Tetreault, executive director of operations at the Alumni Association; Christine K. Wilkinson, president of the Alumni Association; Marcos Gold, a recipient of the Alumni Association's Medallion Scholarship, which is the primary beneficiary of income generated by the Sparky plate program; and Stacy Stanton, from the Motor Vehicle Division.

Also on hand were approximately 30 of the more than 100 students currently receiving a Medallion Scholarship, the Alumni Association's board of directors, and other invited guests.
