Your daughter graduated from Knox in 2005. What was it like to have a child attend your alma mater?
Obviously, Katie attended Knox during a very different era than we did, but it was reassuring for us to discover how much the values and the atmosphere of the campus remained the same. Her Knox experience reinforced our belief in the benefits of a small school liberal arts education. We believe that a Knox education, one that includes exposure to a variety of educational disciplines and ideas, makes one a more well-rounded person. We see the results first-hand through Katie and her friends -- these bright, active, young people are taking advantage of their Knox educations and reaping the benefits as they pursue graduate school and careers.
Why do you give to Knox?
We give to Knox because we want to make sure these opportunities continue. We support Knox through an annual contribution to the Dr. Wilbur Pillsbury Scholarship Fund, in honor of one of the finest men we have ever known, and to the Knox Fund, asking and trusting that Knox will use our gift where it is needed most.
