The next president of Fresno Pacific University plans to serve the community as well as the campus.
D. Merrill Ewert will become the university’s 10th president in July of 2002. “FPU’s vision resonates with my personal commitment to promote higher education, to strengthen communities and to build people and institutions in an increasingly pluralistic society,” he said.
The link between Mountain Lake and Fresno Pacific University continues to strengthen with the appointment of D. Merrill Ewert as the university’s next president.
When he becomes FPU’s 10th president in July of 2002, Ewert will join fellow natives Arthur Wiebe, president emeritus, and Jonathan Dick, chemistry faculty. Ewert’s family operates a farm near Mountain Lake, and he remains involved in the enterprise.
