Central College will be hosting an opening convocation Thursday as a conclusion to the college’s “Welcome Week” activities that began last weekend. The event’s speaker is 2006 Central College alum Justin From, who is currently in his second year at the University of Iowa’s College of Law.
From graduated with a double major in mathematics and philosophy and studied on the Granada, Spain, program for one semester while at Central. After graduation, he taught in the Teach for America Program in inner city Houston, Texas, for two years.
The opening convocation is open to the public and will be held at 11:00 a.m. Thursday in Douwstra Auditorium on the Central College campus.
