Green, who studied piano at the School of Music and was a member of the DePauw Symphony, became a pre-school music teacher after graduation and created a program to teach music fundamentals to children. She and her late husband Judson ’74 made a significant contribution in 2005 to frontload the expansion and renovation of what is now the Judson and Joyce Green Center for the Performing Arts and another gift in 2013 to launch the 21st Century Musician Initiative, intended to re-imagine the music school curriculum to train students to become entrepreneurial professionals.

They further enlivened the music scene in Greencastle when they renovated a building on the town square, established Music on the Square and gave the new performance venue to DePauw. After that, they sought to strengthen the ties between DePauw and Greencastle by opening Bridges Craft Pizza and Wine Bar, TapHouse Burgers and BreadWorks By Bridges.

Green is an adviser to the School of Music, a past chair of the Washington C. DePauw Society and the co-founder of the DePauw Discourse Symposium.

Glover is the cofounder and CEO of 120Water, a digital platform used in water safety, compliance and wastewater monitoring programs that has affected more than 100 million lives in more than 30 states. Her work attracted the attention of national leaders, including former President Obama, and won praise from a variety of individuals and organizations.

Duncan is an entrepreneur and a volunteer extraordinaire. Through her Duncan College Consulting business, she has counseled more than 500 students and families through their journeys of college admissions over the past six years. She has volunteered on five capital campaigns for four nonprofits, and was co-chair in 2017 with her husband Walt ’88 for a campaign for Allied Arts.

She devotes most of her volunteer time as a trustee and education chair of the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum, and she has led the boards of many other organizations.

Thompson is a pianist, social musicologist, teaching artist and producer. Known onstage as “Sock Joplin” because of his penchant for shoeless performances, he is increasingly recognized nationally for his expertise on classical composers of African descent and the broader aesthetic of Black arts. He has a long roster of musical appointments and awards, including creative partner in residence with the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra for 2022-24.

He was a featured presenter in 2019 for the popular TED Talk series and created an award-winning podcast series Melanated Moments in Classical Music with co-host Angela Brown.

Linville, a tenor with a degree in vocal performance, worked in the School of Music at DePauw from July 2007 until his death after a brief illness in October 2021. He rose through the ranks, starting as assistant to the dean and coordinator of publicity and lastly holding multiple roles simultaneously.

He became director of productions in August 2017, overseeing the University Performing Arts Production Team, including planning for more than 200 School of Music events each year; developing marketing strategies to recruit and retain students; managing the operating budget; and taking the lead on grant applications. He became a part-time assistant professor of music in 2013 and music director for DePauw musicals in 2011, a role in which he collaborated with the musical stage director, recruited student performers and conducted performances.
