A Presidential podium has been constructed with the help of both Marywood’s School of Architecture and the Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance. The podium is in front of Scranton's City Hall and will serve as a place where young (and not so young) kids will be able to have a photograph taken as a commemoration of the 2021 Inauguration of a “Kid from Scranton.” Since its initial announcement, members of the University community have shared their family photos (see one below)! Special thanks to James Eckler and Tim Pyles for their guidance and help in making this happen.View photo of Emily Coleman’s children enjoying the new podium...
