Beyond the always popular football game, Albion College’s Community Day 2014—on Saturday, September 13—highlighted President Mauri Ditzler’s interest in strengthening the bonds between College and city. With Mayor Joe Domingo, Ditzler dedicated “Collaboration Corner,” a new park space at East Michigan and Monroe streets.
While Albion College is admired for its national reputation, its importance to the Midwest was front and center for the inauguration of Mauri Ditzler as the College’s 16th president on Friday, September 12. Several hundred students cheered as the crowds gathered at the newly redeveloped west end of Albion’s quadrangle.
Together on stage near the conclusion of the September 12 presidential Inauguration, Albion College Board of Trustees Chair J. Donald Sheets, '82, and his wife, Angela Scott Sheets, '82, shared the news of their $1-million gift to the College to establish an endowed scholarship fund for future students.
