Passing the Torch

Castleton alumni John P. Schnorr, Class of 1967, recently presented the University with a gift of patriotic importance, an authentic Olympic Torch. Schnorr carried the torch on July 17, 1984, the day before the Opening Ceremony of the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. 

Schnorr has given Castleton University the honor of displaying the torch to “emulate the goodwill that the games inspire in all who compete or attend, and in all who enjoy the privilege of competing as student athletes.”

The torch is currently on display in the Castleton Athletics awards case located in the lobby of the Spartan Athletic Complex.
