Anne Hurt Krieg & Kenneth J. Krieg '83
Anne Hurt Krieg and Ken Krieg arrived at Davidson from small towns, where they were taught the value of giving back to their communities. From the time they were dating as students, Anne and Ken have combined forces to make a powerful impact on Davidson College. Their positive attitudes and their seemingly endless energy combine to make them unstoppable. Between the two of them, no problem is unsolvable, no issue too complicated, no detail too small.
They each demonstrated their enthusiastic leadership for Davidson early in their careers. While at Davidson, Anne was a member of Rusk House and the Interfraternity Council. She played varsity field hockey, participated in intramurals, and served as a resident advisor. Ken was a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha national fraternity. He participated in intramurals and the Student Government Association. He was inducted into the Phi Eta Sigma, Omicron Delta Kappa, and Phi Beta Kappa honor societies. He was a Charles A. Dana Scholar and a Lunsford Richardson Scholar and received the Agnes Sentelle Brown Award as a freshman for his outstanding promise as a leader. Anne graduated with a degree in psychology at Davidson before going on to earn an MBA at the University of Virginia. Ken graduated with a degree in History at Davidson before earning a master's in public policy from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard.
Anne and Ken have generously given their time to Davidson since they graduated. They have served together on reunion committees, regional campaign committees, and as Annual Fund volunteers. Ken served on the Will Terry Scholarship Board of Advisors and the Board of Visitors, and Anne was elected Vice President of the Alumni Association and currently serves on the board. When Anne and Ken served as co-chairs of the Memphis chapter of the Davidson Alumni Admission Program, they enthusiastically worked to encourage students to apply to Davidson and then to persuade them to attend Davidson.
As National Co-Chairs of the Annual Fund, however, Ken and Anne made their most significant mark. Their leadership of the national Annual Fund effort helped change the way Davidson raises Annual Fund dollars. Through their energy, steady guidance, and thoughtful advice, Ken and Anne redefined the role of national co-chairs during their tenure. They were tireless in their pursuit to make Davidson's Annual Fund among the best in the country. As a result, they led Davidson to a record-breaking year in alumni participation and dollars raised.
Because you have delighted in serving Davidson together; because you inspire others to your same high standard of service; because you have always responded generously and enthusiastically to Davidson's call to service; and because you have made Davidson proud to claim you as her own, the Davidson College Alumni Association honors you, Anne Hurt Krieg and Kenneth Joseph Krieg, Class of 1983, with this Alumni Service Award on the occasion of your Twentieth Reunion, April 5, 2003.
