Charley Thompson, MBA’81

Charley Thompson (left) and John Thompson, MBA’82 (right), were on hand at the Sorenson Center when acclaimed poet Eileen Myles came to campus as part of the Charles D. and Marjorie J. Thompson Visiting Poet Series, named for John and Charley’s parents. Chuck Thompson, their father, was a longtime Babson administrator who served as vice president for college resources. John emails, “Our parents, Chuck and Marjorie, were lovers of the arts in all forms and created the visiting poet series as a way to bring more of them to the Babson campus. Charley and I are proud of their legacy and enjoy coming to campus to hear the poets.”
