Commencement: A sign of changing times

New Trustee Sue Deans reflects on Knox’s Commencement.

Excerpt from the Daily Camera:

In 1970, members of my graduating class at Knox College wore ordinary clothing, not caps and gowns, when we walked across the stage to get our diplomas…..

….Earlier this month, I revisited the scene of that graduation. This time, 38 years later, I did wear a cap and gown. This time, I’m part of the Knox establishment — last June I was elected to the Board of Trustees. This was my first commencement ceremony as a trustee.
