Neil J. O’Connor/Gilkey

Neil J. O’Connor, Elder class of 1935, married Betty Gilkey (Seton ’36) whose four Gilkey brothers all graduated from Elder in early 1940’s.  They all went in the Army or the Army Air Core and fortunately they all returned after WII.  Neil J. O’Connor, Jr. graduated from Elder in 1960 and his three sons Neil III ‘85, Michael ’87 and Kevin ’ 90 all graduated from Elder.  This Scholarship was created to thank Elder, to provide financial help to current Elder students so they can have the same opportunities and to recognize the O’Connor’s and the Gilkey’s who benefited from their Elder education.
