Classes of 1950-59

Doug '56 and Jo Powell

"The most meaningful aspect of my liberal arts education was the relationship with Lawrence professors who saw academic talent in me that I didn’t know was there. They helped me find ways to demonstrate this capability. The Messiah’s Hallelujah Chorus is a favorite memory. I am motivated to support Lawrence because of the balance of activities and interests that are offered to Lawrence students now that weren’t there in my day.”

Doug Powell '56, pictured with his wife, Jo Powell
