In a gubernatorial proclamation, Gov. John Lynch notes that Gene and Joan Savage met at Plymouth Teachers’ College (now Plymouth State University) and celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 2007. They have had an enormously positive effect on the state. Gene Savage served two terms as the Plymouth State University alumni trustee on the University System of New Hampshire’s Board of Trustees, and both Gene and Joan have worked tirelessly on behalf of education, Plymouth State University, and the University System of New Hampshire.

Gene Savage also was the 2007 recipient of the Chancellor’s Medallion, given to him by Chancellor Stephen J. Reno at this year’s Plymouth State University commencement ceremony in recognition of his achievements. Family and friends have established an endowed scholarship at PSU to honor the couple as they celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.

In closing, Governor Lynch states, “Now, therefore, I, John H. Lynch, Governor of the State of New Hampshire, do hereby proclaim June 23, 2007 as Gene and Joan Savage Day on the occasion of their 50th wedding anniversary and in recognition to their dedication and work on behalf of the University System of New Hampshire.”
