John Hammond’s relationship with Lindenwood goes back to 1991 when he joined the Board of Directors at a time when the only way to go was up. He was the co-owner of G.W. Composites, and he had a keen eye for finance. Others also know him from being the Chairman of the Board of Frontenac Bank.


Hammond’s generosity led to the inception of The Hammond Institute for Free Enterprise in 2012. The institute’s mission is to foster free enterprise and civil and religious liberty through the examination of market-oriented approaches to economic and social issues. Hammond’s commitment to this mission, and to Lindenwood University, was recognized at the event. And, it was announced that after more than 30 years, Hammond has decided to retire from the Lindenwood University Board of Trustees.
