Esther Klages, alumna of George Fox via Cascade College, was an essential member of the campus community for many years. Esther volunteered her time, energy, and enthusiasm to the support of this place, a college she loved dearly. Ms. Klages is remembered on campus in the dining hall and plaza named in her honor, and also on a plaque on the Centennial Tower, which was made possible by her generous contribution. Esther also took the time to stuff envelopes for campus mailings, offer a listening ear to students, and attended many events on campus. She loved to see the college thrive.
