Class & University Honor Daniels '71 with Wilson Award


A record number of classmates gathered in Princeton on the February 23rd Alumni Day to recognize our own Mitch Daniels, who received the Woodrow Wilson Award given to an undergraduate alumnus or alumna whose career embodies Wilson's invitation in his speech, "Princeton in the Nation's Service." In his morning address in RIchardson Auditorium (Alexander Hall), Mitch examined the current challenges facing the United States in his speech, "Do Princeton Graduates Match the Moment?" At lunch where he was formally presented with the award by Princeton Board of Trustees Chair Kathryn Hall '80, Mitch spoke to a capacity crowd in Jadwin. The day of honoring Mitch was topped off with a splendid reception and dinner starting at the Class of 1971 Library at Tiger Inn orchestrated by Class Reunion Chair Jack Hittson and ably hosted by VP Kirk Liddell.

Mitch recently ended his second term as Governor of Indiana and was installed this January as President of Purdue University. Among his accomplishments as Governor, Mitch transformed the $800 million deficit he inherited in his first term into a $500 million surplus. Since 2008 during the period of the Great Recession, he led the actions that enabled the State of Indiana to accumulate $2 billion in cash reserves. With the surplus, he issued tax refund checks to all Hoosier taxpayers.
