It was an evening of celebration in more ways than one as Keuka College alumni, friends, and guests gathered Saturday for the Green & Gold Celebration Alumni Dinner.
“I’m pleased that so many have turned out to help us recognize our Pathfinders, Milestone Reunion Celebrants, and Award recipients – and to simply connect with one another,” Keuka College President Amy Storey told those gathered in the Geiser Dining Commons.
Alumni Association Executive Council President Chrisy AmEnde recognized the College’s Pathfinders, those alumnae who graduated at least 50 years ago.
The crowd also heard from Katerina Schlabig ’20 of the KC-FAN, the College’s Future Alumni Network, who spoke of the importance of establishing strong ties among current students.
The evening was capped by the following award presentations:
Marylizbeth “Candy” Stern Hamacher ’80 won the Professional Achievement Award.
Christine Allgeier’69 won the Eleanor Judd Wilkes Service to Keuka Award.
Elsie “Talu” Robertson ’59 won the Community Service Award posthumously. Family members accepted the award in her honor.
Brandon Jones ’15 M’16 won the GOLD Award, which stands for Graduate of the Last Decade.
