Don Jacobs' gift to Kellogg honors deans

Dean Emeritus Donald P. Jacobs honored Kellogg's associate and assistant deans by making a generous gift to the school. At his request, study group rooms and the Student Affairs Office Suite will be named for those who have served with him in key leadership roles. Said Dean Jacobs, "I have made this gift because of the high regard and feeling of gratitude I have for the associate and assistant deans and I thought this would be something that befits them."

The Student Affairs Office Suite will be named for Edmund J. Wilson, associate dean for student affairs. Wilson has served Kellogg, for over 25 years, beginning as the director of admissions and now as leader of the student affairs team. "I love this place, and the dedication of the Student Affairs Office in my name is a distinct honor for me," said Wilson. "I'm very proud, but also humbled by it."

In the Jacobs Center, eight study group rooms will be named for the associate and assistant deans who have offices there. Those honored include: Fran Brasfield '95, assistant dean of student affairs; Carole Cahill, assistant dean of administrative services; Catherine Grimsted, associate dean for finance, planning and technology; Richard Honack '94, assistant dean of external relations; Roxanne Hori, assistant dean of career management; Liz Livingston Howard '93, assistant dean of development; Megan Byrne Krueger '91, assistant dean of alumni relations; and Michele Rogers, assistant dean of admissions and financial aid.

At the James L. Allen Center, Ken Bardach, associate dean for executive education, and Erica P. Kantor, assistant dean of the Executive Master's Program, will be honored with the naming of study group rooms. Vennie Lyons '72, associate dean of The Managers' Program, was honored two years ago with the naming of the student affairs suite at Wieboldt Hall.

Carole Cahill, representing all the deans, said, "It has been an honor just to work at Kellogg, let alone having our names attached this wonderful place forever. We all thank Dean Jacobs for investing in us as new hires and again investing in Kellogg with this honor."
