Dear Grove City College Alumni and Friends, As proud members of a Grove City College family, it is our pleasure to extend a special welcome to you and your guests on Homecoming Weekend! Homecoming offers the chance to reunite and celebrate the memories we made and recall the lessons we learned, the people we met, the ways we grew and the fun we had here on campus as students. It also offers a glimpse into the life of the campus today – so you get to see fruits of your legacy. Finally, it is an opportunity to share this special place with new generations of Grovers! As Grove City alumni who are celebrating a reunion ourselves this year, we are reminded of the impact the College has had on our lives. The friends we’re seeing again, the laughter that’s shared, and the blessings God has granted throughout our lives are precious. Cherish these special moments of nostalgia, and look forward with confidence, assured that Grove City College continues to equip leaders like you to make a difference in our world. We’re looking forward to celebrating with you,

Paul and Brenda (Millican) McNulty ’80



Jack Kennedy Memorial Alumni Achievement Award This prestigious award was established in 1964 by the Grove City College Alumni Association to annually recognize alumni who have made significant contributions to their fields of endeavor and to society.

2015 award winners: Don Templin ’84 is executive vice president, Supply, Transportation and Marketing, of Marathon Petroleum Corporation. He is also executive vice president and a member of the board of directors of MPLX GP LLC, and a member of the board of Calgon Carbon Corporation. He was appointed senior vice president and chief financial officer of Marathon Petroleum in 2011 and served in that role until assuming his current position in 2015. Templin is active in a number of charitable organizations, including the United Way. Templin is a certified public accountant and a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. He attended the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies in 2012. The Nu Lambda Phi fraternity brother played soccer at Grove City College. He served on the Alumni Council from 1988 to 2003. He and his wife, Carrie, have two sons: Ben and Will. Faith (Whiteley ’64) McCoy retired after a 33-year career as a Clandestine Service staff officer with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Since her retirement, she has continued to work for the CIA as an independent contractor. From 1969 to 2002, McCoy served the CIA in all major Clandestine Service disciplines. This includes collection operations, dissemination of intelligence, counterintelligence, covert influence and language instruction. Because of the nature of the work, much of it remains classified. Her career was divided between positions at the CIA headquarters and service overseas. She had four postings to Europe and served as chief of three overseas facilities. She led a Headquarters operational group and branch overseeing overseas operations. She was chief of a Headquarters office disseminating sensitive counterintelligence information. McCoy was a member of the Gamma Chi sorority. She and her husband, Leonard, reside both in Clearwater, Fla., and McLean, Va. They have two children: Carson Emily and Leonard Cave.


Distinguished Service Award The Distinguished Service Award was established in 1999 to recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to the College through consistent and exceptional service.

2015 award winners: Dr. Charles S. MacKenzie, the fifth President of Grove City College, is an accomplished theologian, pastor and writer. As president, he led the College through the landmark 1984 Supreme Court case. MacKenzie was President of Grove City College from 1971 to 1991. Under his leadership, the College increased enrollment and faculty, guided the school through a curriculum change, maintained the College’s debt-free status while improving the campus in six projects that totaled $38 million. In 1998, he was honored with the DeTocqueville Award for his contribution to freedom, and in 2003, received the Gordon College distinguished alumni award. MacKenzie is married to LaVonne “Vonnie” (Rudolph ’56) MacKenzie, a native of Grove City. David M. Lascell, Esq., a partner with Harter Secrest & Emery LLP, is a trial lawyer with more than 45 years of experience. He has achieved a national reputation in higher education law. Lascell was chief counsel for Grove City College in its landmark Supreme Court case in 1984. He led the College through Grove City College v. T.H. Bell, Secretary of Education and made headlines in the first court case in which an educational institution fought for the right not to accept federal or state funds. He is now a Trustee Emeritus at Grove City College, after serving on the Board from 1996 to 2009. He led as vice chair of the board and also as treasurer.
