History of Founder's Day
On December 12, 1919, a memorial service was held to honor the school's founder,
Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, who had passed away on December 12, 1917. The presidents of all the classes met with Dr. George Still to plan the event, a brief ceremony in the assembly hall and a floral wreath placed on the statue of A. T. Still. It was decided then that a similar ceremony would be held each year to honor the founder of the school, and that was the beginning of Founder's Day.
Ceremonies have been held each year thereafter and enable all of us to gather to renew old ties, to make new acquaintances, and allow us to evaluate and enjoy the progress the University has made in meeting the demands of each new day.
