2009 Signature Series Otterbein Welcomes Back One of Its Own: Dan Knechtges ’94 Dance Concert 2009 Features Work by Alumnus

DANCE CONCERT 2009:

Otterbein Alumni and guests will welcome the return of Dan Knechtges ’94 to campus for the 2009 Dance Concert, March 5 through 8. Dan was selected as the “Signature Series” guest artist for the 08-09 academic year. Photographer Joel Meyerowitz who photographed the aftermath of 9/11 was the last “Signature Series” guest artist to visit campus in 06-07. Not only did Dan choreograph a spectacular dance number for the show in March with Otterbein students but he spent time on campus recently in classes and offered advice on auditioning. A public convocation will be held on Thursday, Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. where Dan will discuss his time at Otterbein and his most recent professional endeavors including choreographing The 25th Annual Putnam Spelling Bee and Xanadu now on national tour. On March 2 at 5 p.m. he will offer a Masters Class to local dance studios and its students. Dan has directed and choreographed for numerous theatres across the country. His choreography has been noted for its exceptional storytelling, deft humor and good show biz. Dan has had the pleasure of choreographing all four incarnations of the Tony Award winning The 25th Annual Putnum County Spelling Bee - the workshop and the first production, the Off-Broadway New York Premiere, and the Broadway production. For the Off-Broadway production, Dan was nominated for a 2005 Lucille Lortel award for Outstanding Choreographer. You can visit his website to see samples of his most recent choreography and learn more about Dan at www.danknechtges.com.

Acceptance Speech by Kathy A. Krendl, PresidentElect of Otterbein College I am very honored to be here today to accept the presidency of Otterbein College and I want to express my gratitude to all of you. To be offered the chance to build on the exceptional legacy of President DeVore in partnership with the talented and dedicated students, faculty, staff and alumni of Otterbein College is a singular opportunity indeed. I am grateful to you for your willingness to entrust me the stewardship of your much beloved institution—notable both for its academic excellence and its remarkable founding philosophy that has privileged inclusivity since its beginning in 1847. Without exception the individuals I met with during the interview process bore witness to the power inherent in the student centered education grounded in the tradition of the liberal arts. I heard in their words what I know in my heart as the recipient of such an undergraduate education at Lawrence University. Everyday of my life I draw on that four-year experience where ideas in all disciplines matter, where faculty cared about who I was and what I might become and where I was asked to accept and celebrate my responsibilities > > > next page


I will take my inspiration from the talented faculty and dedicated staff who spoke to me so eloquently during the interviews,, not abo about their jobs but about their callings. dl ~ Kathy Krendl as a citizen. Such an education was an incomparable gift and it is what in part Otterbein College has for 161 years been giving to its students. But Otterbein College is also distinctive among liberal arts institutions. What makes it unique and what made me want to lead this institution is its heritage of inclusiveness, its commitment to an integrative curriculum, and its unabashed idealism evidenced through its national reputation in communities serviced through the leadership of President DeVore. An Otterbein liberal arts education is like none other and I am passionate about continuing to foster it to the best of my ability and so doing I will take my inspiration from the talented faculty and dedicated staff who spoke to me so eloquently during the interviews, not about their jobs but about their callings. Otterbein College has much to be proud of, not only in the realm of undergraduate education, but also in its Graduate and Continuing Studies programs and the commitment to making the student experience as rich and engaged as possible. That tradition continues. It is an area identiďŹ ed in the recently completed strategic plan that will give Otterbein an even greater scope to continue its pursuit of inclusivity and opportunity in new ways. Richard and I both look forward to joining the Otterbein family—for that is how it truly struck us—and to forming the type of friendships that have ourished under the distinguished leadership of President DeVore. With its beautiful campus, its exceptional people, and a new strategic teaching plan created by the campus community, Otterbein College possesses all of the elements necessary to unite the promise of its future with the proud heritage of its past. To paraphrase what has come down through history as John Wesley’s rule, I pledge in my work as President of Otterbein College to do all the good I can, by all the means I can, in all the ways I can, in all the places I can, at all the times I can, to all the people I can, as long as ever I can. Thank you very much. O 4HE ANNOUNCEMENT OF +ATHY +RENDL AS /TTERBEIN S PRESIDENT ELECT IS mASHED IN 4IMES 3QUARE

How did Otterbein prepare each of you for “the real world�? )N SEVERAL WAYS &IRST OF ALL WE BELIEVE THAT A SOLID LIBERAL ARTS EDUCATION TEACHES YOU HOW TO THINK AND INTERACT WITH ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE 3ECOND -ARK WAS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK IN THE ACCOUNTING BUSINESS HIS JUNIOR AND SENIOR YEAR WHICH GAVE HIM A GOOD FEELING FOR WHAT WAS WAITING FOR HIM AFTER GRADUATION $EBBIE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE IN SEVERAL MUSICAL GROUPS SORORITY HELD THE OFlCE OF SONG LEADER AND OTHER EXTRA CURRICULAR GROUPS ON CAMPUS

Why is Otterbein a part of your philanthropy? &IRST WE HAVE A SOFT SPOT FOR /TTERBEIN AND IT MEETS THE DElNITION OF THE TYPE OF ORGANIZATION WE LIKE TO SUPPORT !ND SECOND BECAUSE IT PROVIDED #HELSEA -O AND US THE FOUNDATION FOR OUR CAREERS 7E HAVE BEEN VERY FORTUNATE OVER THE YEARS WITH PRETTY GOOD SUCCESS IN OUR CAREERSˆAND WE BELIEVE #HELSEA AND -O WILL DO THE SAME

You are an Otterbein couple, and your daughter Chelsea ’05 married Jeremy (Mo) Ross ’05. What is it about Otterbein that inspires these commitments? ) THINK IT JUST POINTS OUT THE QUALITY OF THE STUDENTS THAT /TTERBEIN ATTRACTSˆINDIVIDUALS WITH HIGH STANDARDS AND COMMON INTERESTS 4HEN LET NATURE TAKE ITS COURSE

What, in your opinion, makes Otterbein a good investment? 4HE QUALITY OF THE GRADUATES AND THE IMPACT THEY HAVE ON THE hREAL WORLDv YOU ASKED ABOUT EARLIER You both contribute your time and talent to many causes. What is one of the greatest gift(s) you’ve ever received? (AVING TWO GREAT DAUGHTERS #HELSEA AND +AYLEA THAT WILL BOTH BENElT FROM A LIBERAL ARTS EDUCATION FROM TWO OUTSTANDING SCHOOLSˆ/TTERBEIN AND /HIO .ORTHERN

What distinguishes Otterbein from other college options in the central Ohio area? /TTERBEIN IS UNIQUE IN SEVERAL WAYSˆYOU CAN START WITH A LIST OF SOME OF OUR OUTSTANDING PROGRAMS LIKE THEATER EQUINE SCIENCE NURSING ETC 9OU CAN ADD SOME VERY COMPETITIVE SPORTS TEAMSˆAND WE THINK YOU WRAP IT UP WITH THE QUALITY OF THE FACULTY AND STAFF THAT DELIVER A HIGH QUALITY EXPERIENCE FOR THE STUDENTS 4HE FEELING OF FAMILY ON CAMPUS WAS IMPORTANT TO $EBBIE 3HE WAS SIX HOURS FROM HOME BUT INSTANT FRIENDSHIPS AND A CARING FACULTY KEPT HER FROM BEING HOME SICK

What do you think is the greatest challenge to face Otterbein in the next ďŹ ve years? #OMPETITION FOR STUDENTS /TTERBEIN WILL NEED TO CONTINUE TO IMPROVE THE EXPERIENCE THEY OFFERˆTHAT EXPERIENCE INCLUDES PROGRAMS FACULTY STAFF AND FACILITIES 7ITH A NEW 0RESIDENT COMING ON BOARD NEXT YEAR SHE WILL NEED TO QUICKLY EXECUTE ON THE STRATEGIC PLAN THAT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED OVER THE PAST TWO YEARS SO THAT WE CAN KEEP /TTERBEIN AHEAD OF THE COMPETITION O
