John S. Shropshire Hall Dedication
Shropshire Hall (formerly Egbert)
Join us for the formal dedication of Shopshire Hall. The former Egbert Hall has been fully renovated and refurbished as the PennWest Clarion Admissions Welcome Center. Featuring state-of-the-art furnishings and staffed by a full admissions team, John S. Shropshire Hall reflects its namesake’s belief that by keeping students in the center, we would end up in the right place.
John S. Shropshire ’61, former dean of Admissions, devoted his life and work to serving students. The first Black dean at Clarion, Shropshire advocated for equality, but not just racial equality. He wanted all people to be equal, and he knew that education was essential in that quest. Students were at the forefront of every decision he made as dean.
