Millikin lost a good friend and a generous benefactor with the death of Charles "Perk" Perkinson, on May 31. He and his late wife, Patricia '45, helped reshape Millikin through their $8 million gift to renovate and endow the School of Music building, which was renamed Perkinson Music Center in their honor.
 
As long-time Millikin supporters and donors, the Perkinsons’ many gifts to Millikin also included naming Perkinson Gallery in Kirkland Fine Arts Center, as well as bringing the iconic Mr. B.B. statue to campus. MORE
