Grinnell College's Frances Leslie '10 was named to the honorable mention list of the 2009 National Soccer Coaches Association of America Scholar All-Central Region Women's Team.

The forward also helped the Pioneer women claim the 2009 Team Academic Award from the NSCAA. Leslie led the Pioneers in goals in 2009, including a four-goal performance against Illinois College that was just one shy of the school record.

Grinnell's men had two honorees on the All-North Central/Region Team, as JP Prouty '10 was named to the first team and Alex Exarhos '10 the second team.

1882 -- After a cyclone ravaged the campus just before Commencement in 1882, the College rallied, with the help of local leader J.B. Grinnell, to raise the funds to completely rebuild the campus.

1910s -- President John H.T. Main's "Campaigns of Progress" raised enough money to begin his building plan, which would culminate in the Quad and the North Campus residence halls.
