Yaz fan to skipper Southern Vermont College

That's the entire school - not just the baseball team.

Karen Gross, a professor of law who has a strong interest in civil liberties and a passion for books, maps and Red Sox slugger Carl Yastrzemski, was inaugurated as the new president of Southern Vermont College Saturday afternoon.

Gross was formally inducted as the eighth president of the small college in a ceremony at the Bennington Center for the Arts that drew many presidents from the region's colleges.


Gross said she thinks the No. 8 is significant for her personally and professionally, since she has become the college's eighth presidency.

"My favorite baseball player of all time – my Red Sox hero Carl Yastrzemski — wore the No. 8," she said in a whimsical turn in her talk.

Another home run for Yaz Nation! Congratulations, Karen!!
