Your forty years in Rockford business already has brought you distinction and fame. Your interest in education has been exemplified in your eleven years as president of the Rockford Board of Education, properly recognized by the citizens of that community in naming a school for you. Your interest in higher education has been exemplified by your service as an Alumni Trustee of your alma mater. Your life as a valued member of your community with years of service to civic affairs (most recently your chairmanship to the Community Chest) is an example to all Beloit Alumni who now honor you with this Distinguished Service Citation.
