It was a full house in the Wright State University Student Union Atrium on March 6, as students, faculty, staff and community members gathered to witness university history.
Cheryl B. Schrader, chancellor of Missouri University of Science and Technology, was appointed the first female president of Wright State. Trustee Grace Ramos captured the significance of the moment when she said she was “pleased to have a role in breaking the glass ceiling at Wright State University.”
“I am both honored and humbled to be the seventh president in the history of Wright State University,” said Schrader. “And I do have to let you all in on a little secret — seven is my lucky number.”
Here’s a look at the historic day for Wright State and Schrader.
