Jacksonville College President Dr. Edwin Crank had a surprise 70th birthday party on campus Wednesday. Decorations were hung from buildings, his parking space and all doors he had to go through to get to his office.

The college cafeteria was decorated for the event, and employees served a large birthday cake to faculty, staff, students and visitors. Dr. Crank received two cakes for the occasion.
