About the Kreider Lecture

Through the generosity of Thomas Conner '72, professor of history at Hillsdale College, this annual award is made possible and awarded to a current Elizabethtown College faculty member for excellence in teaching and mentoring.  The award is named in honor of J. Kenneth Kreider, professor of history emeritus, and Carroll L. Kreider, professor of business emerita, "for their inspirational service to countless students at Elizabethtown College."  The Kreiders were not only inspirational in the classroom, but also were powerful mentors and role models.
