Founders’ Room Dedication
The College’s new Founders’ Room, located in the Beacon College Library, was formally dedicated on the morning of the inauguration. The purpose of the room is to highlight the successes of the College, showcasing the milestones in our historical progression. Key depictions of the past are now on display, including photos of previous presidents, buildings, and students, along with primary source materials related to academic accomplishments and College developments over the past 25 years.
The formal ceremony to inaugurate the College’s third president, Dr. George J. Hagerty, was held on the grounds of Beacon Hall on Friday afternoon.

Beacon College is indebted to many generous people who have made contributions in support of the College and our students. The Gala Donors’ Dinner held at Mission Inn on Friday evening, following the inauguration, provided an opportunity to recognize and show our appreciation to these individuals who have made such a positive impact on the College.
