3) As a student at tiny Juniata College in Pennsylvania during the early 1950s, Chuck Knox fell in love with history — almost giving up coaching to become a professor.
After he logged 22 years as an NFL head coach, hindsight proves Knox made a solid decision. But his passion for learning and a connection with his alma mater always remained.
Knox recently donated $1 million to establish the Dr. Charles R. and Shirley A. Knox Chair in History at Juniata, a 1,400-student liberal arts school in Huntington, Pa., tucked into the Appalachians 120 miles east of Pittsburgh.
Knox has long been a supporter of Juniata. He gave $50,000 toward a sports and recreation center and was chairman of a $1 million campaign to improve athletic facilities. He also served on the college’s board of trustees from 1978-99. (Source)
4) The Juniata Scholarship Fund had its highest year ever, raising money to award scholarships to academically qualified students who demonstrate great financial need. This year we increased the amount of each scholarship award from $2,300 to $2,390 in order to provide more assistance to the students who need it most. As we continue to welcome large classes to Juniata, we know that the impact of these awards will continue to be felt. (Source)
5) Three retiring Juniata College administrators — Thomas R. Kepple, president; Jim Lakso, provost; and John Hille, executive vice president for enrollment and retention — have been honored by the college they served by the establishment of a scholarship and two endowments to benefit students and faculty at Juniata.
At a recent faculty-trustee dinner, Robert McDowell, chairman of the college’s board of trustees, announced that more than $2 million in gifts and donations have been designated to three endowments named for the three top administrators who have led Juniata for more than a decade.
Tom Kepple was honored by the announcement of the Thomas R. Kepple and Patricia G.

Hille was honored by the announcement of the John and Tan Hille Endowed Scholarship, a $50,000 scholarship that will provide one student per year with a $2,500 merit scholarship to lessen tuition.
