Dr. Walter Moore `62 will share his personal journey from Mitchell College Freshman to Professor Emeritus on Wednesday, October 3, 7-8:30pm at the Red Barn at Mitchell College. While there were peaks and valleys along the way, the perseverance and confidence he learned during his two years at Mitchell allowed him to stay the course of pursuing his goal regardless of obstacles or criticism. Mitchell was not simply a stepping stone it was a launching pad to a profession and life that he could not have imagined in the fall of 1960 when he first moved into Moorings Dormitory.
