===Teresa L. Amott===
 
The 19th President of the college, also the first female president, scheduled to take the helm during the 2011-2012 school year. Most Knox students don't know anything about her yet. Check out the articles about her on the Knox website as well as videos of her speeches at Knox and you will be just about as informed as the rest of us.
 
  
 
===Roger and Anne Taylor===
 
===Roger and Anne Taylor===
[[Roger Taylor]] resigned at the end of the 2010-2011 school year from his position as the college president. He used to be a lawyer for [[Kirkland & Ellis LLP]], in [[Chicago]].  He liked to introduce himself as an [[alum]], only for it to eventually dawn on you that he was the president.  This is because Knox is humble and down-home.  He may have helped you move your things in during [[orientation]].  During [[Commencement]], he pronounced 2007 as twenty-oh-seven.  He was very concerned about [[financial impregnability|financial birth control]], and used many techniques, including the [[Endowment|pill]], the [[Natatorium|withdrawal method]], and the messy [[Alumni Hall|partial-birth abortion]].  He likes to tell [[When Roger Met Anne|the story about how he met his wife Anne]] whenever he is within fifteen feet of a podium.  If you visited Knox as a [[prospie]], you might have been met by Roger as the tour group stopped outside of his office.  This was not an accident; he had the tour guides talk louder so he knew to come out and say hi and prove to you that Knox is humble and down-home.  Sometimes he would eat in the [[Caf]] and sit down by random students to make conversation.  It was a little [[awkward]].

[[Anne Taylor]] is Roger's wife.  She is also an attorney, and is special counsel for the college.  She is no friend of [[Flunk Day]], for the multifarious liability issues.  She makes sure Roger remembers people's names.  She and Roger lived at [[Ingersoll House]].  A few special functions, such as [[Mortarboard]] induction, might get you a chance to go in.
