Alumni who attended the University of West Georgia’s 2013 Homecoming had the opportunity to meet not only new students, but also a new president. Among the exciting activities on Saturday, October 5, alumni encountered President Kyle Marrero at events like the annual football game. Four alumni who met in UWG’s Lambda-Delta chapter of the Kappa Sigma fraternity got a chance to have their photograph taken with President Marrero.
Dayton Preslar, who graduated in 2011, joined the fall 2013 inaugural class of the Campbell University School of Osteopathic Medicine. The other alumni are studying law at their respective institutions. John Sechrist graduated in 2011 and is scheduled to finish his legal education at Wake Forest University School of Law next year. Tyler Mashburn, UWG class of 2011, is the president of the Student Bar Association at Mercer’s Walter F. George School of Law and will also complete his degree in 2014. Alan Long, who graduated this year, has just begun classes at the Georgia State University School of Law.
President Marrero was delighted to meet and pose for pictures with all four alumni. He explains, “They are all such incredible examples of the success of our graduates and the great things that can happen when you ‘Go West!’”
