SteveHorn2 A celebration of life will be held for Steve Horn, who spent a decade in Congress and was a former president of Cal State Long Beach.

The event will begin at 2 p.m. April 30 at the university’s Carpenter Performing Arts Center, 6200 Atherton St., Long Beach.

Horn, 79, died Feb. 17 from complications of Alzheimer’s disease at his Long Beach home.

At Cal State Long Beach, Horn served as president from 1970 to 1988, an era of tremendous growth for the school. In 2003, the school named a building that houses an art museum after Horn and his wife, Nini.
