Robert Sparks '56

Life Trustee

President's Circle Member

Robert and his wife, Kathy, are members of the President's Circle Giving Society and give to the Knox Fund, capital projects, and scholarship funds.

Robert Sparks is a Life Trustee on the Board of Trustees.

Why is a Knox education so important?

I can't think of any place that can prepare someone in his or her early 20s to go out into the world better than Knox. I was a graduate of Galesburg High School, and I thought my grades in high school were just fair, but Knox really helped me develop intellectually and personally.

Why do you give?

When you're around the College, like Kathy and I are six months out of the year, and you see what the faculty and staff are doing, you're simply compelled to give. The College has an outstanding faculty and an enthusiastic staff. By giving to Knox, we give the students who come here access to a full education in the liberal arts, and I strongly believe it's a good place to put our money.
