“We are deeply grateful

for the Keipers’ generosity

that assures future students

will have the opportunity

to enrich their educational

experiences through

participation in varsity

athletics,” said President

Kent Trachte. At Lycoming,

about one-third of students

participate in one of the

school’s 17 intercollegiate

sports. Even more participate

in the College’s dozen sports-

related clubs and intramural

programs.

As a history and

mathematics student, Doug

Keiper was a member of the

wrestling and track teams,

active in the Kappa Delta

Rho fraternity and president

of his senior class. Keiper

later served as the College’s

associate dean of students

and the associate director of

admissions. Dawn worked as

an elementary school teacher

in Montoursville. After

leaving the College in 1983

to pursue other interests,

the Keipers remained

engaged in the Williamsport

community.

“As a young man, I chose

Lycoming College based on

its great wrestling program,”

said Keiper, who was the

first in his family to go to

college. “But I lucked out

and got so much more from

Lycoming, including a first-

rate education and inspiring

mentors. Dawn and I feel

privileged to able to help

continue that tradition of

providing high-quality sports

programs along with a great

education.”

Lycoming College named

its recreation facility the

Keiper Recreation Center at a

dedication ceremony during

the Oct. 25 homecoming

weekend. The name

recognizes the tremendous

support from Doug ’68 and

Dawn Keiper for gifts that

have created an endowment

to support the College’s

athletics program and its

program in early childhood

education.
