Sewanee celebrated Founders’ Day Oct. 12 with the traditional Convocation in All Saints’ Chapel. Ning Tang, C’98, delivered the Founders’ Day Address and made a case for the importance of a liberal arts education in developing global citizens and responsible businesses: “What makes a company great?
