Class of 1967 Celebrates 

Fifty-five members of the Class of 1967 returned to Knox College to celebrate their 50th Reunion during Homecoming 2017, thanks to the efforts of co-chairs Carol Romsa Parke, Nancy Rabenstein Pielemeier, and the 50th Reunion Committee.

Early in the planning process, the Committee set a goal to reach 50 percent giving participation in honor of their Reunion. To help reach this goal, an anonymous donor pledged to give $500,000 if the Class succeeded. As an added incentive, another classmate offered to match any gift with $100 to meet the goal before Homecoming. Thanks to these generous donors, the Class not only met 50 percent giving, but exceeded it. In fact, at Homecoming Convocation, the Class garnered the Ralph Walter Prize for the highest percentage of alumni donating to the College with 52.3 percent of the Class making a gift and the co-chairs presented a check to President Teresa Amott for $1,326,885!

There were many other activities for the Class before and after Convocation. Check out the Knox College Flickr page for photos from Homecoming 2017.
