New marquee for Anderson Center
The new Anderson Center marquee, a gift of Visions Federal Credit Union, was unveiled April 15.
Dignitaries from Visions Federal Credit Union and Binghamton University lit up a new electronic marquee last week outside the Anderson Center for the Performing Arts.
A gift from Visions Federal Credit Union, the marquee will display event information and other updates to Anderson Center performance-goers.
For Binghamton University President Lois B. DeFleur, the marquee characterizes Binghamton University’s relationship with the community.
“Visions is a strong supporter of the community and the University,” DeFleur said. “We are very grateful for this marquee and the many other ways in which Visions supports this institution. Their efforts make this a better University, and the Southern Tier a better community.”
The marquee uses the latest Daktronics LED video technology and is able to present video images, colorful animation and graphics. In keeping with the University’s energy conservation efforts, the system also features minimal maintenance and low power consumption.
“Visions has been a longtime supporter of the theater, arts and the vast athletic programs provided at the University,” said Frank E. Berrish, president/CEO of Visions Federal Credit Union, “and we welcomed the opportunity to fund the new marquee to enhance the Anderson Center entrance.”
