Family of the Year

2018 Family of the Year Award
The Pepper family

Monmouth College’s connection with the Pepper family began nearly five decades ago when two of the children of Richard and Roxie Pepper – Stan Pepper ’76 and Lynda Pepper Bollman ’76 – enrolled. Their daughter Lisa Pepper graduated in 1987, and a second generation of graduates began in 2004 when Cassandra Pepper Gibson, daughter of Stan and his wife, Chris, received her degree. Through the years, the Pepper family has generously supported the College, including providing the naming gift for the Huff Athletic Center natatorium. The expertise of the family company, Chicago-based Pepper Construction, has also benefited the College, serving as general contractor for the construction of the $42 million Center for Science and Business. Meanwhile, Stan Pepper, the company’s CEO, has provided valuable guidance as a College trustee since 1999, chairing the building and grounds committee and serving on the academic affairs committee.
