Alumnus and Life Trustee Dr. Robert B. Pamplin Jr. is nationally recognized as a business pioneer and philanthropist. A lifelong athlete and advocate of physical fitness, in 1992 he sponsored the Chairman’s Challenge. More than 2,000 members of the Lewis & Clark community gathered to “Beat Bob” in a series of athletics contests that raised funds to expand the library. This September he reprised a similar challenge during the first week of classes where he did 31 pull-ups and 311 push-ups. Lewis & Clark’s prestigious Pamplin Society of Fellows, which he founded, recognizes students deeply committed to academic excellence and physical fitness. Dr. Pamplin is an avid and successful weightlifter, boxer, and practitioner of karate.
