Past Presidents

Presidential Leadership

Messiah College has enjoyed the courageous leadership of eight visionary presidents throughout its 100-year history. Each leader has been passionate about Messiah’s role in Christian higher education and worked tirelessly to recruit students, raise funds, expand the physical plant, develop academic and co-curricular programs, and promote church and community relations.

Their challenges were different but their goals were the same: to create an environment where students’ lives were transformed.
