At a reception May 3, the Chair of the Board of Trustees David Brennan ’75, P’00 made a surprise announcement. The recent addition of the College Union Building will be renamed “The Janet Morgan Riggs Student Center” in honor of Gettysburg College’s 14th president.
“Throughout your 40-year career and your distinguished presidency, you exemplified what it means to be a Gettysburgian,” Brennan said during a ceremony following the reception, which kicked off with a performance by the Gettysburg College drumline. “You inspired us and you brought our community together. You have given your heart to this College and to our students, and now your name will forever grace this building within the heart of our campus.”
