In celebration of 20 years of excellence in education, and to honor his commitment, dedication and service to the East Valley Institute of Technology, the main campus, at 1601 W. Main Street in Mesa, was officially renamed the Dr. A. Keith Crandell Campus on Dec. 12.

In 1994, Crandell retired as superintendent of East Valley Institute of Technology, but promptly ran for the school board and won. During his tenure on the board, he has continued to watch his vision grow and evolve. In 1998, EVIT opened its $46 million dollar main campus. In 2007 and 2011, new health science buildings were added, and in 2011 a new 10-acre branch campus opened in east Mesa.
