C.J. Cregg: Should She Be Kenyon’s Next President?
This is the second installment in a five-part series. Every night through Thursday, we’ll bring you a new candidate to be Kenyon’s next president. On Friday morning, we’ll open a poll so you can vote for your favorite. The Thrill will then convey the results of that poll to the Presidential Search Committee, which will hold a public meeting on Friday evening.
Important note: the nominee is not famous Kenyon grad Allison Janney ’82, it is Claudia Jean Cregg, the press secretary to the Bartlet administration on The West Wing, as portrayed by Janney. With her no-nonsense demeanor and media savvy, C.J. would strike fear into the hearts of grouchy faculty and difficult trustees, while inspiring alumni to open their wallets with her inspiring speeches. And just think of how efficient she would be, having all those walk and talks on Middle Path. Plus, she can do this.
