Judson College in Marion celebrated Founders’ Day in its weekly chapel service Jan. 7. In addition to being the first day of classes for the spring semester, Jan. 7 marked the 175th anniversary of the first day classes were ever held at Judson.
Mary Amelia Taylor, marketing and web communications specialist, gave a brief history of Founders’ Day, during which portraits of Milo P. Jewett, the college’s first president, and Edwin D. King, the first chair of the board of trustees, were ceremonially draped with Judson’s traditional colors. Susan Jones, interim vice president and dean of students, delivered the message.
