Another banner year for devoted alumna

Bob ’69 and Caroline Smith ’69 Lewis
For some 25 years, Caroline Smith ’69 Lewis has volunteered to construct national championship banners for North Central College's athletic department.

A stream of red and white national championship banners in the Residence Hall/Recreation Center grows steadily, thanks to the talents of North Central’s student-athletes, their coaches and Caroline Smith ’69 Lewis. The Naperville resident donates her time, talent and materials to construct the banners.

“One thing I won’t do is buy any of the materials ahead of time,” she says. “If I were to have it on hand, they might not win. I only buy what I need after Al (Carius) calls me to say they won.”
