Janet Greig Post, Class of 1894The Janet Greig Post Leadership Society, named after one of Knox's most generous and steadfast alumni, recognizes donors who give $10,000 or more annually to Knox.

Janet Greig Post came to Knox College as a first-year student in 1890 and graduated with a bachelor's degree in  1894. Post assumed her husband's position on the Knox College Board of Trustees after his death in 1920, and she was considered a powerful member of that group. She was such an active Knox alumna that students attending the weekly service at Beecher Chapel had been known to "praise Father, Son, and Mrs. Post." She maintained her seat on the Board until her death in 1964.

Post worked tirelessly to raise the funds necessary to restore Old Main. She knew how to talk to people and to recruit their assistance. Old Main, which still stands today central to the campus, is the pride of Knox College and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Post Leadership donors give at the most generous level of all Knox's annual donors. Gifts at this level are exemplary and truly have an impact on the College.
