Excalibur winners and finalists represent best of community

The entire Rockford College community extends its congratulations to Jim and Pam Keeling, recipients of the 2011 Excalibur Award.

Jim has served as a Rockford College Trustee since 2007. The College has benefited from Jim’s and Pam’s passion to serve and serve well and we are in good company with many others in the community. They have helped raise millions to support amenities that enrich our region. And, perhaps above all, they have challenged us to think beyond ourselves through initiatives like Half the Sky and Operation Respect.

We also are proud to congratulate Rockford College alumni Mike Broski (1982) and Jim Pirages (1977) on being finalists for this year’s Excalibur award. In the true spirit of the Excalibur Award, their dedication and service to our community make the Rock River Valley a better place to live, work and raise families. True to the college’s long legacy of producing graduates that are civically minded and socially responsible – Mike and Jim think, they act, and they change their world.

Congratulations again to Jim and Pam Keeling, Mike Broski, and Jim Pirages!
