In Memoriam: President Emeritus John P. Walsh

John P. Walsh, a former president of Dunwoody College, died Dec. 10, 2009. He was 94.

On Sept. 30, 2008, the College named its manufacturing center in honor of Dr. Walsh and his wife. Here is the text of the plaque that hangs at the entrance to the center:

President Emeritus John Walsh served as president of Dunwoody College of Technology from 1968 to 1978. During his administration, Dunwoody dedicated the “Warren Building,” which had been donated to the college by the estate of H.E. Warren; graduated its first women from the full-time Day School programs, remodeled the Architectural and Baking departments and the Decker Auditorium; expanded Dunwoody training internationally; and launched the $6 million “Vital Source” capital campaign.

Dr. Walsh and his wife Marie have provided generously for Dunwoody in their estate plans. Since Dr. Walsh began his career as a machinist and machine shop instructor, Dunwoody has named its manufacturing technology center in honor of Dr. and Mrs. Walsh.
