Volunteers at Presidential speech at Knox

Dozens of Knox College students, faculty and staff served as volunteers, seating guests, giving out water in the audience, distributing tickets and assisting with the innumerable details of planning and presentation involved in a presidential visit. Some Knox staff began working as far as a week in advance to prepare campus. A few of their efforts are recorded in a Flickr gallery.

More photos by Jamie Jones of the Communications Office and Kayleigh O'Brien '16, a student worker in the Communications Office, are posted on Knox's Facebook page.
