Since its earliest days, Marietta College has never missed an opportunity to celebrate a milestone or anniversary. In fact, observances of important milestones have become integral to the history of the institution.
When Drs. Janet Bland and Tim Catalano first heard about the ways Marietta College planned to celebrate its 175th anniversary this academic year, both wondered if there was a way for them to get involved.
Anticipation is growing, as Marietta College’s students will begin voting for this year’s Homecoming royalty from an impressive cast of 11 students—five queen and six king hopefuls—who make up the 2009 court. All are seniors.
The winners will be announced at halftime of the Pioneers’ football game with Ohio Northern on Saturday, Oct. 17. Kickoff is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. at Don Drumm Stadium.
