My sister (B.A. M.A., FSU) and I attended an alumni event here in Jacksonville last year at which Dr. Barron and his wife were guests. He spoke about alumni giving, of course, along with updates about good things happening at FSU, among other University related news.
He took questions from the group, and his answers on the stump were both informed and well framed. My sister and I are very pleased that he's our President, coming as we both did from Dr. Marshall's era.
