Local restaurateur, Brenda Egenlauf, reflects on the Knox Commencement weekend in Letters to the Editor of the Register-Mail.
What a weekend! We started our 9th year in business on 6-1-07 and what a great present we got. We had the best graduation week ever. The entire week was saying hello to parents and students finishing finals and leaving for the summer, and goodbye to families and graduates leaving for higher education and some to new jobs.
From Hong Kong to Hawaii and everywhere in between we are the better for having Knox in Galesburg. The financial impact alone for us is tremendous. We just wanted to acknowledge Knox College staff, administration and students for making this graduation weekend the best we have ever had. We are looking forward to seeing more parents, and students next year, as this year was probably one of the smaller classes from here on out. – Brenda Egenlauf, Chez Willy’s, Galesburg.
