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.
Wes Casto ’09 is an accomplished songwriter, musician and petroleum engineer, proving that he knows what it means to strike the right balance between his hobbies and his career.
After graduating from Marietta College, Jerry James ’80 had the opportunity to live all over the United States.
As President of Artex Oil Co., James loves the simpler life that living in Marietta, Ohio, presents him.
“I’ve been fortunate in my career that I’ve worked in some nice towns and everything, but Marietta … has a lot of history and is a beautiful town,” says James, who earned a Bachelor of Science in Petroleum Engineering. “It’s a lot easier lifestyle than in the big city.”
