Group to study future of annual ISU celebration

AMES, Iowa (AP) — A task force has been formed to determine if an annual celebration at Iowa State University should continue in the future following a large crowd disturbance near campus.

University President Steven Leath announced the 20-member group Thursday. Tom Hill, senior vice president for student affairs, will lead it.

The group includes student leaders and staff, as well as the mayor of Ames and the police chief.

Plans for the task force were announced shortly after a crowd disturbance this month near campus. People gathered during the multi-day Veishea celebration are accused of overturning cars and toppling light poles. One student was injured.

The disturbance led to Veishea's suspension this school year. The group will study the celebration's history and offer recommendations to Leath before the end of June.
