Randolph-Macon College Society of Alumni
presented Harold Duke with an Honorary Alumnus award on February 6, 2013.
The award was presented at a reception in the Alumni Gymnasium that preceded the
game. Kerri Valentine ’82, SOA Board member, Board of Trustees
member Jack Luck ’64 and R-MC President Robert R. Lindgren presented
The Awards Committee of the Society of Alumni honors friends of the college who
have shown interest and affection for the college by giving of their time, talents,
and resources to R-MC. Duke is one of Randolph-Macon’s most loyal patrons.
Duke, a native of Ashland, is a businessman in the Hanover County community. He
attended R-MC briefly but left to serve in the military in the 1950s.
“Harold’s passion for Randolph-Macon is unsurpassed,” said Lindgren. “He is a loyal
and consistent financial supporter of the college and an avid Yellow Jacket fan.
He rarely misses a Randolph-Macon game. In fact, look up into the stands during
any football or basketball game and you’re bound to see him in the same seat rooting
for his beloved Yellow Jackets. I am honored to join Kerri, Jack, and the entire
Randolph-Macon community in presenting Harold Duke the Honorary Alumnus award.”
