Marquis Society

Fleck Society

Since 2005–06, Lafayette has provided special recognition to alumni who demonstrate consistency in providing financial support to the College. All alumni who make gifts for five or more consecutive years qualify for membership in the Fleck Consistent Giving Society, named in honor of Cyrus S. Fleck Sr. (1899–2000), a devoted long-time Lafayette supporter, volunteer, and trustee.

The alumni who qualified as members of the Fleck Society in 2015-16 are acknowledged in this publication.  Those members who have provided at least ten years of consistent support are also recognized with named bricks along the campus walkways bordering the Quad between Markle Hall and Colton Chapel.  The more than 4,000 bricks currently in place have already made a very favorable impression on students, faculty, alumni, and campus visitors.

The current chairs of the Fleck Consistent Giving Society are Michael Whitman ’82 and Linda Tedori Whitman ’83.
