Beth Comstock ’82, former vice chair of General Electric, will speak at William & Mary’s 2019 Opening Convocation ceremony. The annual tradition, which takes place the first day of classes, serves to mark the beginning of the academic year and to welcome to university’s newest students to campus. The event, scheduled for 5:15 p.m. on Aug. 28 in the Wren Yard, is free and open to the public.
The annual event, started three years ago, seeks to celebrate the accomplishments of William & Mary’s students of color.
On Feb. 8, the College celebrated its 321st birthday with the annual Charter Day ceremony.
