About

It's Founders Day and #KnoxProud Day!  Since its founding in 1837, Knox has embraced its values as an educational institution that believed deeply in the potential of every human being to learn, grow and contribute to the greater good of the community. 

A huge shoutout to our challenge pool donors! Knox Proud Day wouldn't have the same energy without the generosity and enthusiasm they inspire.
