Jan Devore

The overwhelming response made by alumni and friends to the news of the June 30 retirement of Jan Devore, alumni relations director, has led to a change of plans. The retirement event for “Jan’s fans” will now be postponed to this fall’s Homecoming, Oct. 4-6, to allow a larger number of individuals to attend in person and wish her well. Watch for the time, location and other details to come your way this summer once plans are finalized.


Great !

Thrilled to hear this,  as lots o Alpha Chis & friends will be back for our Centennial as well as lots of alums celebrating reunions .... PLEASE arrange something that does not conflict with Sat. eve. activities ... such as a Fri. night "party", the likes of which  Jan, herself, hosted 5 years go ... or Sunday morning?  So glad alums returning fo Homecoming will get to extend their personal Goodbyes & Good Lucks.  Jan has "owned" Homecoming for so many years.  Whatever will we do without her ?  I dare say she made every alum from every class for 30 + years feel h eor she were special.... That is a talent that is impossible to duplicate ...........
Regards.... Mary Cole Chuzi & Paul Chuzi (MU '68 & '69)

The rest are pretenders

I'm her biggest fan. She's an icon who should have a building named after her

Never Another

There will never be another administrator on Millikin campus like Jan. She is everything to students and alumni that an institution like Millikin could ask for.  I'm glad to call her my friend and champion when I needed one as a student.

A Special Woman

We had three children graduate from Millikin in '87, '89' & '90.  During all of that time we grew to have great admiration for Jan
and her memory.  She always remembered whose parents we were and has continued to do so to this day whenever we attend
a MU event in Decatur or here in Springfield.  That is the best PR
anyone would be envious of.  Godspeed, Jan and enjoy your

In a class by herself!

I enjoy Jan's warm welcome every time I return to campus.  She's got the best memory for not only students' names, but our interests and activities even decades earlier.  She's an inspiration!
