Public Memorial for Towson President Maravene Loeschke Tomorrow



Maravene Loeschke had many ties to Towson University. She got her undergraduate degree there (in theater, ’69), as well as a Master’s (education, ’71).

Loeschke sadly passed away earlier this summer, and now the university is planning a public memorial service to honor one of its most impressive and ardent supporters.

Serving as the president of a college involves taking on a number of roles — relating to students, reassuring trustees, leading faculty, wooing donors — but rarely do college presidents actually slather on the stage makeup and get in costume.
