“If it hadn’t been for the investment that others made in our education, we couldn’t be pictured here. Now, it’s our turn. Knox has been an important part of our lives since our first date in early 1958. We plan to continue our support for our lifetimes. Then, our planned gift will endow a scholarship that will be available for generations of future Knox students. So much was done for us, it’s the least we could do, and should do, for others.”

Some years ago, Mary Lu Hudson Aft ’60 and Dick Aft ’60 talked with their three sons about their wills. For years they had assumed that some day each of their adult children would receive one-third of their assets. Reflecting on the meaning that Knox had to each of them, Mary Lu and Dick discussed their idea of “rounding one-third” from 33 1/3% to 30% so that they could leave 10% of their estate to Knox. Everyone agreed on the importance of what they could all send to future Knox and family generations by doing this. Although, only Mary Lu and Dick attended Knox, their entire family has, and continues, to benefit from their years there.
