Caitlin Schlorff recently discovered a scrapbook that revealed a fourth generation of her family’s connections to North Central College.
Caitlin “Cait” Neuman ’11 Schlorff recalls the moment when a simple request by her grandmother suddenly unearthed a treasure trove of her ancestors’ deep connections to North Central College.
They were at the family’s cabin near Eagle River, Wis., when Cait’s grandmother, Bonnie Erffmeyer ’54 McLaughlin, asked her to retrieve something from a closet. That’s where Cait discovered a scrapbook created by her maternal great-grandfather.
“My grandma had me looking for a hummingbird feeder and this scrapbook was on the top shelf,” she recalls.
