Celebrating a Special Bond: Coach for LIFE
Wow! January has proved to be a month of celebration as the college hosted two very special events with Eureka coaches as a centerpiece!  On January 21, the Christine Bonati Bollwinkle Arena and Convocation Center at Eureka College, served as the site of the downstate celebration of Eureka’s favorite son, Ben Zobrist, the 2016 World Series MVP.  Our beautiful facility was in the spotlight and two of our incredible alumni, Craig Gerdes ’71 and Bob Gold ’94 were recognized as inspirational coaches who were instrumental in Ben’s development into the man he is today. That event rolled directly into a basketball celebration for Eureka College’s Head Men’s Basketball Coach, Chip Wilde who marked 10 years of coaching with alumni players who were eager to return and celebrate with all of us here ‘neath the Elms! What a treat to play host to such a special a community wide celebration and a great college milestone on the same day!
I am so proud to be a member of this special community. The bonds we share and the impact that we make have lasting value. They are to be recognized and celebrated. It is the Eureka way!
