Schwenn’s Portrait Unveiled

Dr. John Schwenn and his wife, Judy, react as Schwenn’s official presidential portrait is unveiled in Westcott Hall at Dalton State.

Schwenn served as the College’s fourth president, from March 1, 2008 to Dec. 31, 2014. Under his leadership, the College saw the addition of numerous bachelor’s programs, the revitalization of a dormant athletics program, a new science facility, and the addition of on-campus housing.

Schwenn was lauded as being student-centered and for carrying the College forward through an economic regression, as well as having the insight to help the College grow into a traditional four-year institution.
