THE INAUGURATION OF PRESIDENT MARK THOMPSON was a multiday celebration for the entire Wentworth community. From the annual Women’s Lunch and a panel held in conjunction with the JFK Library to a motivational workshop and community-wide scavenger hunt, the week of Oct. 15–20 provided something for everyone. Thompson was officially inaugurated that Friday with Family and Alumni Weekend rounding out the events over the weekend.
