    With a gift to the Carleton tennis team, a St. Olaf graduate celebrates her parents, her daughter, and her former cross-town rival coach. 

    “We were cross-town rivals with Carleton,” says Julie Mall P’12, who played tennis at St. Olaf from 1975-1979. “My doubles partner and I, our whole team, just coveted Pat Lamb—it was very rare to have a female head coach. And she was just so friendly, supportive, and skilled."

    “We hadn’t considered that these opportunities weren’t available to all students, and that even with a full scholarship, they could still be out of reach,” says Dan Carlsen ’80, P’17, P’20. “It never occurred to us that this huge gap in discretionary income can create barriers to engaging in the Carleton experience.”

    By her count, Eva Grench ’19 is the 36th person in her family to attend Carleton—a list that includes cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and even great-grandparents. Her parents, Dawn Scott Grench ’83 and Bruce Grench ’82, met in Myers Hall when they were first-year students. So because Carleton has meant so much to their family, Dawn decided to give back.
