Mr. Lang is remembered for his generous support of the College and our students. His late wife, Theresa, who died in 2008, was a 1997 graduate of MMC at the age of 79, served as a Trustee from 1997–2006, and received an honorary degree in 2008. The Theresa Lang Theatre, the College’s 249 seat proscenium house and urban Off-Broadway showcase for professional theatre, dance, and music, is named in her honor. Mr. Lang also established the Theresa Lang Endowed Scholarship Fund, to support students who demonstrate excellence in community service and extracurricular activities.
