People Make Wabash Special, President Says
About a month ago, I sat down with President Andrew Ford and discussed
how his December quadruple bypass surgery affected him (it didn’t, he
claims) and Wabash College. He expressed desires for Wabash students to
have the ability to learn hands-on, to transfer their classroom experiences
into everyday world activities and interactions.
