Carleton College invites all members of the Northfield community to join Ele Hansen’s family and friends—along with former students, athletes, and colleagues—at ‘A Celebration of Ele Hansen’s Life and Legacy’ on Friday, Oct. 18 at 7 p.m. in the Skinner Memorial Chapel. Following a special service of remembrance, participants are invited to the Great Hall for a Memorial Reception.
A much beloved member of the Carleton community, Ele Hansen passed away in July 2013 at the age of 92. Hired by President Gould in 1952, Hansen chaired the Women's Physical Education Department, taught PE classes, and coached women's softball and cross-country for 34 years, until her retirement in 1986. She remained such a strong supporter of Carleton and individual members of the college community that many felt she never really retired. Hansen was a role model for generations of Carleton women students who were encouraged by her to be and become themselves.
