When John W. Landis ’39 graduated from Lafayette, he served as valedictorian and won the Pepper Prize, awarded annually to the student who most closely represents the “Lafayette ideal.” Since then, Landis, joined by his wife, Muriel, has more than proven himself deserving of the reward by giving back to the Lafayette community. Most recently, that took the form of a $1 million commitment to support the College’s community outreach program. “Muriel and I have enjoyed our voluntary efforts so much we would like to help others find the same fulfillment,” he says. “We look upon the community outreach program as a means of doing just that.”
