Bill Vernon’s life epitomizes what a Marietta College education is all about.
On Sunday, he will be the final graduate of the Master of Arts in Liberal Learning at Marietta College and join the rest of the graduates during the 176th Commencement on Sunday, May 12. The M.A.L.L. program was launched in 1974 during Dr. Sherrill Cleland’s tenure as Marietta president.
Though Vernon began taking graduate courses at Marietta in 2004, his ties to the College began decades earlier.
Is there a bigger Marietta Moment than this week?
