Alumni, Other V.I.P.’s ‘Lead the Way’ at College Homecoming

Befitting the themed focus on campus leaders − those from earlier days and those who continue their student mentorship as employees and graduates − Penn College Homecoming 2012 was one to remember. Full of reunions both playful and poignant, including the first inductees into the Athletic Hall of Fame and two curricular anniversaries, many of the events showed an apt reverence for history as the college counts down to a 2014 centennial. (Not that there wasn’t ample time for fun amid the formalities; consider that Homecoming Weekend included a Tailgate Competition, Chili Cook-Off, bonfire, Alumni Golf Outing, the Nearly Naked Mile charity run and an emphatically omnipresent mascot.)
