Alan White Bell Tower dedicated
dedication ceremonies were held prior to Elon's home football opener
on Sept. 9 for the Alan J. White Bell Tower.
White and his wife Norma were joined at the dedication ceremony by their good friends Jeanne and Jerry Robertson, who made a generous gift to Elon's athletics scholarship endowment to name the bell tower in White's honor. Jeanne Robertson is an Elon trustee.
"I am also appreciative of Jerry and Jeanne Robertson’s leadership in making this tribute possible," Lambert said. "Elon University is a better place because of Jeanne’s leadership as a trustee. Jerry and Jeanne’s leadership and generosity, by the gift they have made, will provide access to a great Elon education to young people for generations to come. Long after we’re all gone, I can promise you two things: these beautiful bells will still toll, and student athletes will be at Elon because of Jeanne and Jerry Robertson’s foresight."
