The Lucy Templeton Kellogg ’24 Visiting Artist Program

The Lucy Templeton Kellogg ’24 Visiting Artist Program was established in May 1998 by many contributions in her memory from family and friends. This endowed fund generates income to bring visiting artists to Chase who teach interested students in music and the arts in a manner that enhances the curriculum and enriches their lives.

Lucy Templeton Kellogg ’24 was passionate in her love of and support for Chase Collegiate School. She served on the Board of Trustees from 1954 until her death, and in 1981 was made a Life Trustee. She and her husband, Frederic R. Kellogg ’19, received the Distinguished Alumnae/I Award in 1981.

Mrs. Kellogg’s enthusiasm for the School never waned. She seldom missed a board meeting and, whenever her schedule permitted, attended Alumni Day festivities and other School events. She was especially interested in young people and always found time to engage them in conversation, eager to get to know them and hear their views.

Mrs. Kellogg set the standard to which we all might strive – gracious and caring, warm and friendly, involved in her community and the School, strong in her beliefs yet open to challenge. She is the legacy that is Chase Collegiate School.
