Babson College will celebrate its centennial year in 2019 by bringing together a slew of its current/former/future presidents for what it’s boldly describing as an “historic Fireside Chat” on Feb. 8 from 4:30-6pm at the Sorenson Center for the Arts on campus. Portraits of the presidents will be revealed at the event.
Presidents Emeriti Ralph Sorenson, William Dill, William Glavin, Leo Higdon, Jr., Brian Barefoot, and Leonard Schlesinger are slated to join outgoing President Kerry Healey and President-Elect Stephen Spinelli to swap stories and learnings at the event, which is free and open to the public. A reception will follow for alumni, parents and friends.
Babson founder Roger Babson actually ran for president against Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the original Fireside Chatter, back in 1940.
