Linking town to college leader’s primary goal


Franklin College President Jay Moseley and wife Candace Moseley, both at front of line, along with staff, students and guests participate in the march. The college also hosted a chapel service at the Richardson Chapel to honor Martin Luther King Jr.

Franklin College sits just a few blocks from downtown, but in earlier decades it operated as isolated community.

President James “Jay” Moseley has worked to break down that invisible wall and form partnerships between the campus and the city. That work has been a main focus of his time leading the college as the 15th president.

“He’s done a tremendous job of kicking the door open and saying we want to be part of the city,” said Franklin Mayor Joe McGuinness, who is a Franklin College graduate.
