Earlham College will Saturday inaugurate Alan Price as the school's 18th president. The event will include remarks from Price and festivities throughout the day, culminating in a fireworks display on the Richmond campus.

Price, an Earlham alumnus, was named to the position in December 2016 and began his duties as president in July. He is also a member of the Earlham Board of Trustees.

"It is a tremendous honor to be Earlham’s 18th president," said Price. "Earlham is a place that I have loved and has brought out the best in me. As a graduate, I had been humbled by the brilliance and caring of our faculty and staff. To come back and see that same spirit of excellence from a different perspective is inspiring."

The inauguration ceremony is scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m. Earlham says hundreds of faculty, staff, students, alumni and members of the community are expected to attend.
