GEORGETOWN, KY – Alumnus Robert N. Wilson and the late Clyde and Anna Ashcraft Ensor are the Georgetown College 2013 Hall of Fame inductees. They will be formally recognized during a Founders Day Convocation ceremony on January 22.
The Ensors were long-time and loyal friends of the College and their devotion continues to impact the lives of Georgetonians. Theirs was one of the largest gifts to Georgetown and enabled construction of the Learning Resource Center, opened in 1998, which bears Mrs. Ensor’s name.
Two of the Ensors three sons, Franklin and Larry, graduated from Georgetown, as did the sons’ wives Debra and Lina. Several grandchildren have attended GC as well, including Howard Ensor, who now serves as a Trustee. Howard’s wife, Whitney, is also a GC alumna.
Bob Wilson, who graduated in 1962, has enjoyed a long and illustrious career in business. He retired as vice-chairman of Johnson & Johnson, and later became chairman/CEO of Claxon Health Holdings.
He has served on the boards of directors of a number of major corporations and has dedicated his life to many worthwhile causes. He currently serves the College as a Trustee Fellow.
Mr. Wilson has provided funding for the College’s Anne Wright Wilson Fine Arts Building, Ruth Pearce Wilson Lab Theatre, and the Robert N. Wilson Baseball Field.
While an undergraduate, he was active in baseball and basketball, served on the staff of The Georgetonian, and became a member of Pi Kappa Alpha.
