2021 Knox Senior Challenge. Every one for everyone.

What is the Senior Challenge?

The Knox Senior Challenge is a fundraising effort led by members of the graduating class in support of a particular initiative at the College. 

Every One for EveryOne

The Class of 2021 is raising money for a newly formed Knox College Student Emergency Assistance Fund. The fund will help current Knox students with unanticipated and immediate financial needs incurred. By supporting this fund for their Senior Challenge, the Class of 2021 hopes to ensure that any Knox student who is adversely impacted by unforeseen circumstances are able to have their basic needs met.

The goal for the 2021 challenge is 100% participation! 

“We care about one another, we feel responsible for one another, and we are ready to work together to ensure Knox’s future. Every One for Everyone.”
