President Slabach’s Inauguration to Feature Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright as Keynote Speaker
The inauguration ceremony for President Frederick G. Slabach will be a community celebration of a new leader and of the continued success and growth of Fort Worth’s oldest university. The much-anticipated event, set for Jan. 27, will feature former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright as the keynote speaker.
What is unique about the inauguration is that the University is not paying for it out of the operational budget. Instead, Slabach is working with senior staff members to raise the funds externally.
“As a faculty member, this tells me that our president has created relationships in our community that are resulting in a new appreciation of and commitment to our mission in Fort Worth,” Kerr said.
“The inauguration of Fred Slabach is a major opportunity to celebrate and bring attention to the history and heritage of Texas Wesleyan. This is an extraordinary event in the life of our University, especially given the presence of Madeleine Albright,” Brown said.
Kerr said the event’s importance reaches beyond President Slabach’s inauguration – it also spotlights Texas Wesleyan’s thriving learning community.
