Class of 1968 Breaks Attendance Record!

During the weekend of October 19-21, 107 members of the Class of 1968 returned to Knox for their 50th Reunion to reminisce, reconnect, and renew ties with each other and Knox College during Homecoming 2018. This breaks the old record of 105 50th Reunion attendees set in 2015.

Thanks to the leadership of the Reunion co-chairs Lee Balgemann, Mary Mangieri Burgland, Chip Evans, John Heyer, and Kathy St. Cyr and the members of the 50th Reunion Committee, the Class of 1968 raised $806,509 for their Class Gift! In addition, the committee exceeded their goal of 50 percent giving participation and reached 56 percent participation!

Thank you, Class of 1968!

But the counting period for the Class gift doesn't end until June 30, 2019, so it's not too late to make a gift.  All gifts given to Knox between July 1, 2016, and June 30, 2019, from members of the Class of 1968 will continue to count toward the 50th Reunion Class Gift.
