A Message From Marygrove President David J. Fike

On Thursday, Nov. 10, Marygrove officially dedicated the Keenan Courtyard during the annual President’s Council Dinner. Elizabeth Clinton Keenan graduated with the class of 1929. In May 2010, Ms. Keenan passed away at the age of 103, and bequeathed virtually her entire estate—valued at over $4 million—to her alma mater, marking the largest monetary gift in Marygrove’s history. To honor Elizabeth Keenan’s beneficence, the College built a beautiful, award-winning courtyard (see sidebar on page 5) adjacent to the Madame Cadillac Building. The courtyard was designed to be a reflection of her educational values, the things she loved and the way she lived her life.
