HLG president gives up home to meet housing need
August 31, 2004
HANNIBAL – Hannibal-LaGrange College is expecting 470 students to live on campus this fall, up from 450 last fall. That resulted in HLG President Woodrow Burt and his wife, Katherine, an English professor at HLG, giving up their residence on campus.
An estimated 10-12 students are expected to move into the president’s quarters.
“We are happy to do this and believe that it will be best for the college and for us in the long run,” Burt said in an e-mail to HLG faculty and staff.
It marks the first time in more than 50 years that the president’s house will be inhabited by someone other than the president.
Classes begin on campus Sept. 1.
