W. Joseph King

18th President of Lyon College



I am honored and humbled by the opportunity to serve as Lyon's president. From its founding on the frontier in 1872, Lyon has remained true to its mission. As it approaches it's sesquicentennial, it has the potential to define and become a 21st-century liberal arts college of the first order. I am excited to be a part of that process. 

-W. Joseph King
