King To Be Inaugurated As Lyon President

Dr. W Joseph King

Lyon College will inaugurate Dr. W. Joseph King as its 18th president at 2 p.m. on April 20, 2018. Held in Couch Garden on the Lyon campus, the ceremony will both welcome the College’s new leader and celebrate the accomplishments he has achieved since taking office on July 1 of last year.

In only ten months, he has worked with the College’s faculty and staff to hammer out a new strategic plan for Lyon’s future, develop a new recruitment model, increase retention, establish more summer courses for students, build a new, larger digital network for the College and enact other campus improvements. Notably, he led the College’s movement towards a pet-friendly campus, created several new faculty positions in subjects of higher need and added four new varsity sports and four club sports that will enliven student life.   MORE
