Galesburg Native Successful as Engineer; Earns Knox Alumni Award

From WGIL radio:

Knox College presented Carol Craig Friday with one of four alumni achievement awards as part of its week-long Founders Day celebration. Craig owns a technology firm based in Florida that has gone from just one employee less than ten years ago, to 170 now. And that’s to say nothing of the fact she was the first woman aviator in her naval squadron, and has won engineering accolades.

Craig admits she wasn’t sure what kind of an impact her going to Knox College would have on her at first. “I’m not sure when I realized how broad of an education I was receiving at Knox,” Craig. “Although, pretty soon, I started to get an idea of how my education might be a little different, when I got comments from people saying ‘You’re not like most engineers.’ You try to figure out if that’s a compliment or not. But I think it turned out to be a compliment. My experience in how I view the world was much broader.”
