Skidmore installs Wall of Honor


Skidmore's Alumni Association Board of Directors celebrated the installation of the College's Wall of Honor in the Kisiel Atrium of the Murray-Aikins Dining Hall on Oct. 26.

Conceived by board members, the electronic panel is a prominently positioned, permanent display highlighting the achievements and contributions of many members of the Skidmore alumni community.

Alumni Association President Gail M. Dudack, a 1970 alumna and parent of Ross '11, explains, "The board was looking for a way to pay tribute to the recipients of the various Alumni Association awards that we give each year, and the new Wall of Honor is a visible and attractive means of doing so."

Working with the college administration, alumni board members offered input on the design and content of the wall. Dudack says, "We wanted to develop a display with an interactive element that would allow users to view content much like they would on their iPad or tablet. The touchable and swipeable screen allows visitors to interactively view photos, read profiles, and watch videos featuring alumni." She calls the result "so much more than we had hoped for."

The Wall of Honor also recognizes individuals who have generously contributed to Skidmore—including members of the Parnassus and Legacy societies and Friends of the Presidents donors—as well as the student recipients of the President's Awards.
