When I graduated from high school, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the medical field. I was interested in becoming a medical technologist, and heard that Mount Union had an outstanding medical technology program.

The Slater Lecture

About the Slater Lecture

The Thelma Tournay Slater Classics Lecture is made possible through a gift of Thelma E. (Tournay '42) Slater. Her lifelong passion for the classics began at Mount Union. The gift supports student enrichment through an increased appreciation of the civilization and cultural achievements of ancient Greek and Rome that stand at the core of a liberal arts education.
