The waiting is over. The inauguration of Dr. Daniel Wubah as Millersville University’s 15th president went off without a hitch.

On Thursday, April 18, Wubah was officially sworn in to the office of president at Millersville. More than 1,200 people registered for the event, held on the Quad on campus.

“I think I can speak for the entire student body when I say Dr. Wubah brings a new level of energy to campus. His interaction and ability to connect with each student is incredible to witness,” said Student Government Association President, John Tintera, who spoke during the ceremony.

Three kings from Ghana

A large contingent of Ghanaians were on hand for the event, including two kings who walked in the procession. Wubah, who is a king in his native Ghana, is the first king to become a university president.

As an incentive for students to attend the inauguration, the first 300 students who registered received free t-shirts to wear to the ceremony, with additional t-shirts available for purchase at the University Store. Additionally, registrants were given seats in a reserved student section to view this special occasion.

Following the ceremony, an inaugural luncheon took place in the Upper Deck of Gordinier Hall.  Students, faculty, staff and guests feasted on Primanti Brothers-style sandwiches, grilled kielbasa, a slider bar, Ghanaian cuisine, assorted desserts and more.

Students turned out in force in Wubah 15 t-shirts.

“On behalf of the Society on Latino Affairs (SOLA) here on campus, we would like to congratulate Dr. Wubah and welcome him into our community. We’re happy to have him here,” said Society on Latino Affairs (SOLA) President, Angel Robinson.

“We’re so thrilled to welcome Dr. Wubah to Millersville and we’re excited to see what he has in store for our Marauder community,” said Amy Koss, president of Hillel.
