Westminster College celebrated the inauguration of its newest president, Dr. Kathy Brittain Richardson.

Hundreds of students gathered in the college's Will W. Orr Auditorium Friday afternoon for a formal, public ceremony welcoming Richardson to the college community. 

Richardson began her term as president on July 1, 2016 as the college's 15th president and first ever female to hold the position. 

Before being hired at Westminster, Richardson served as a provost and professor of communications at Berry College in Mt. Berry, Georgia.
