Jo Ellen Parker is the tenth president of Sweet Briar College. She assumed office on July 1, 2009, succeeding Elisabeth Showalter Muhlenfeld, who retired after 13 years as the College’s ninth president.
Unfortunately we did not meet face to face at the reunion last week, but I did appreciate hearing you speak on several occasions. I especially appreciated the question and answer portion of your presentation on Sunday morning. I also am intrigued by your announcement that there will be a series of programs in the coming year regarding the re-interpretation of the Sweet Briar will which led to the racial integration of the college. I appreciate your willingness to address an important and oftentimes difficult issue. Clearly you are a leader!
