Shonrock Honored with Naming of Chime System

Dr. Michael D. Shonrock, president of Lindenwood University, has been honored with the naming of a new carillon system at Emporia State University in Kansas, where he served as president for 3 ½ years prior to coming to Lindenwood on June 1.

The “Shonrock Now & Forever Chimes” were so named thanks to a donor’s gift. Located in Cremer Hall, they made their debut on Sept. 2 with a system test at 4 p.m. and will “serve as a reminder of the positivity, enthusiasm, and Hornet pride our 16th president embodied,” according to a press release issued by Emporia State.

“This is an amazing gesture,” Shonrock said. “I appreciate everyone who was involved and am very humbled.”
