Dr. Ron Lennon & Dr. Randy Rentfro


As passionate supporters of the performing arts, Dr. Randy Rentfro and Dr. Ron Lennon have a special interest in the power of arts to shape a community. For this reason, they have committed their support to Millikin University’s Center for Theatre & Dance. Randy and Ron have given $50,000 to name the office of the director of the School of Theatre & Dance and an additional $30,000 to name a faculty office. Their investment reflects their belief in the theatre and dance programs at the University and their desire to see those programs flourish well into the future.

Randy earned his bachelor’s degree in accounting from Millikin in 1978. He also holds a master’s of accounting science from the University of Illinois and a doctorate in accounting from Florida Atlantic University. Ron has a bachelor’s degree in theatre administration from Long Island University, an MBA from the University of Baltimore and a doctorate in marketing from the University of Maryland. Both Randy and Ron have taught at the university level at a variety of institutions. As educators, they understand the importance of the strong foundation that the Center for Theatre & Dance will provide to Millikin students.
