Spring 2019


Class Letter:

It’s that time of year again that everyone hates winter (unless they live in a warm place…). It feels as though winter will never be over and the snow will never stop falling. But, spring will be here soon and then before you know it, Alumni Weekend 2019! It’s now been several years since we’ve graduated so it’s about time the Class of 2017 starts partying together once again as Alumni. Maybe play a game of Slip and Slide in the quad like we did during graduation week before we get too old and stiff…

We also wanted to congratulate and wish those luck that are finishing up their Master’s Programs and preparing for their final exams to get their second degree!

Konner, Erin and Winona

I have been working on my two theses for my degree. One is called “Who Do You Say That I Am?” And it looks at how the character of Jesus is depicted in each of the gospels (I lectured on this in Brian Smith’s Christian Scripture class last spring) and the other is “Joseph and Judah: Two Brothers, Two Stories, One Faith” and it is about the Joseph Narrative in Genesis as well as Judah’s narrative within it- looking the themes of each brother’s transformative story in their own light. Moving back to Ripon actually in June! – I can’t say yet what for but good things! Still working with dogs- my absolute passion. I have been a Team Lead and Dog Handler at Dog Days in St Paul, Minnesota for a year now and still aspire to open my own dog daycare/hotel business…. That’s kinda it.
