During Reunion Weekend, alumni and friends gathered to announce and celebrate alumni award recipients, including the winner of the Gregg Cup, Kenyon's highest alumni honor. The awards luncheon took place on Saturday, May 27, 2017.
The Gregg Cup was donated by Henry Sellers Gregg of the Class of 1881, a longtime volunteer who served as a trustee of the College from 1917 until a year before his death in 1938. Originally intended to acknowledge the alumnus or alumna who, in the opinion of the Alumni Council, had made the most significant contribution to the welfare of Kenyon in a given year, the Gregg Cup is now awarded in recognition of a history of service to the College.
Named for Thomas Boardman Greenslade ’31, Kenyon archivist from 1967-1990, and his wife, Mary MacWilliam Greenslade. Given at the discretion of the Alumni Council to members of the Kenyon family — including alumni, parents, employees and friends of the College — who demonstrate the qualities of affection for and loyalty to Kenyon exhibited by the Greenslades in their many years of volunteer service to the College and its constituents.
Awarded to Timothy Baker Shutt, professor of humanities
Presented to those alumni who, in the opinion of Alumni Council, have made a significant contribution to Kenyon in past years as volunteers for admissions, fundraising, career development, and regional association steering committees.
