Wagner named president of Union College

John Wagner has spent most of his career guiding educational institutions and non- profit foundations down the road to growth and success, but he thought that was coming to a close. When the Union College Board of Trustees called Wagner out of semi-retirement to return to Union as interim president, he expected to stay just long enough for the board to find a permanent replacement for David Smith. Now, just a half a school year later, the board has removed the “interim” and asked Wagner to stay on as president.
