Scott Feller has been elected by the Wabash College Board of Trustees to serve as the school’s 17th president. Feller has served as dean of the college at Wabash since 2014 and as a professor of chemistry since 1998. Dr. Feller was unanimously elected during the Trustees’ May 16 meeting.

“Wabash has been fortunate to have Scott and his wife, Wendy, on our team for over 20 years, and I have personally experienced firsthand the attributes that make Scott the best-qualified person to be our 17th president,” said Jay R. Allen, Chair of the Board of Trustees.

Feller replaces Gregory Hess, who announced his resignation in March, after serving as Wabash president since 2013.

“I am humbled by the trust the Board has placed in me and look forward to continuing the good work underway at the College,” Dr. Feller said. “The beauty of the strategic objectives we laid out seven years ago is they are timeless and exemplify our mission: we focus on the intellectual and personal development and success of each and every Wabash student. I have been excited to be a part of this work and look forward to continuing it as president.”
