Rosemary Creighton Swise '42, who observed the 75th anniversary of her graduation from Knox College, was the recipient of a special tribute at Knox's 2017 Commencement on June 4.

"Rosemary's mother, grandmother, brother, husband, sons, daughter, and granddaughter have all attended Knox, and she is an active and loyal alumna," President Teresa Amott said at Commencement. "She remembers the mood on the campus that fateful day in 1941, when Pearl Harbor was bombed, and she is here with us today. Rosemary, receive our congratulations on this milestone."
