Two gifts support campus expansion

Excerpt from the Register-Mail:

Knox College has received two gifts to support acquisition and renovation of a new campus building – one from alumnus Bob Borzello, now living in Great Britain, and one from local Galesburg businessman, Donald Fike.

The former RFMS building at 115 E. South St. will be named Borzello Hall in honor of Borzello, a 1958 Knox graduate, noted for his promotion of ethics in media in Great Britain. Borzello donated $300,000 to the college to buy the building and pay for its renovation. Knox College purchased the building from Donald Fike at the end of 2007 at a substantial discount from its appraised value, resulting in a gift to Knox of $150,000.
