As Marietta College prepares to bid farewell to another class of graduating seniors, President Joseph W. Bruno is pleased to honor employees who have reached a milestone in service, as well as the six individuals who are retiring.
Marietta College recently established the Delta Chapter of Kappa Alpha Omicron, an organization for students and faculty who learn and work with subjects like Environmental Science, Environmental Studies, Sustainability, and other interdisciplinary fields.
“The order was chosen in terms of founders/presidents of IEA,” said Dr. Eric Fitch, Chair of Marietta’s Environmental Science program. “I was granted the distinction of being an honorary founder due to my service to the organization. It is my hope that just as the IEA has attracted members from throughout the world (Japan, Nepal, Bhutan, India, Germany, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, etc.) so too someday KAO will have chapters all over the globe fulfilling the same fundamental purpose: creating a home for interdisciplinary environmental scholars planet-wide.”
Friends Baylee Brown and Vanessa Wilson were pumped up for class, sitting in the front row and wondering what they would learn about for the next 30 minutes.
The floor littered with fragments of colorful balloons and the smell of smoke still lingering in the air, the two fifth-grade girls knew it had to be something good.
