Jeff Abernathy Inaugurated as 13th President of Alma College
Amidst the pageantry of the bagpipes-led process of faculty and visiting delegates and a surprise choir “flash mob” performance of “Loch Lomond,” Jeff Abernathy was inaugurated as the 13th president of Alma College.
The inauguration ceremony in the Hogan Center, Art Smith Arena, on April 8, 2011, capped a weeklong series of events celebrating the College’s 125th anniversary.
The celebration focused on the theme “Changing Lives, Building Community, Leading Change,” which recognizes Alma’s historic commitment to preparing graduates to practice engaged citizenship, service-driven leadership and committed stewardship. Alma College was founded in 1886.
