|Florence (Linek) Evans '28|
Florence (Linek) Evans graduated from Hiram College in 1928 with majors in English and Theatre. During her years at Hiram, Florence was a very active and involved student. She was captain of the Women's Basketball team and House Chairmen of Miller Hall.
Florence was also involved with Student Senate, Players Grove (theatre), the Spider Web, Olive Branch, and Zeta Phi. After graduating she went on to continue her education and received her Master's Degree from Case Western Reserve University.
Florence taught English at both high school and college levels. Florence's daughter, Averil and son, Chad both attended Hiram College.
After retiring from teaching, Florence spent much of her time doing church-related activities and directing community theatre projects. She served on the Alumni Executive Board and served as secretary for two years. She was a strong supporter of the new library construction.
Florence was an inspiration to the College due to both her financial support and her volunteerism. These reasons and many more make her the first alumni to receive the Hiram College Alumni Volunteer Award.
