    Melvin A. Eggers Senior Alumni Luncheon
    Friday, October 6, 2017

    Noon–2 p.m.
    Persian Terrace, Marriott Syracuse Downtown
    Enjoy a special luncheon at the former Hotel Syracuse as we honor Warren “Cookie” Kimble ’57 with the Melvin A. Eggers Senior Alumni Award for his lifelong commitment, dedication, and service to his alma mater. Kimble is America’s best-known contemporary folk artist and considered one of today’s top home furnishings designers, with his images translated into dinnerware, rugs, furniture, textiles, and more. Music by a student string quartet.

    Established in 1988 by Chancellor Emeritus William P. Tolley, the Melvin A. Eggers Senior Alumni Award “was created out of my deep respect and admiration for Chancellor Eggers and to honor senior alumni whose leadership and service to society has been joined with loyalty and service to Syracuse University.”

    The award is presented to those alumni who have graduated more than 50 years ago and have demonstrated loyalty and service to Syracuse University. It is conferred at the Melvin A. Eggers Senior Alumni Award Dinner during Orange Central weekend.
