A retirement ceremony is set for 3 to 6 p.m. Wednesday for the retiring Allen Community College President John Masterson, whose 30-year reign as college president ends in July.

Allen Community College President John Masterson is known for his colorful analogies and his ability to turn a phrase.

So it’s not surprising that Masterson, who served in the U.S. Navy Reserves, would compare education to ships.

“Community colleges are like the destroyers. We’re nimble. We can turn on a dime and we’re speedy. The big universities are like the aircraft carriers of education,” he said.
