Alumni Event, April 24, 2004
On Saturday, April 24, the spring alumni event was
held on Taylor campus! The evening was full of musical
delights, comical anecdotes and good fellowship! Reminiscing,
reconnecting and reuniting were the central aspects
of the event.
Over coffee and dessert, fifty of Taylor’s alumni
enjoyed the musical offerings of the alumni group, “The
Collegiates,” heard testimony from alumni Micah
Slavens, and got caught up on recent Taylor events from
Mike Henry and Joanne Van Beek, two current students.
Rob Merrifield, an alumnus, shared a Christian MP’s
perspective on current state of the Canadian political
scene. President Marvin Dewey shared the vision of the
school and updated the alumni with Taylor’s current
news. Neil Kaarsemaker awarded 3 distinguished alumni
for their examples of leadership and servanthood for
Christ. (Click here to read the article on this year’s
“Distinguished Alumni Award
Recipients.”) Old friends reconnected over
stories of Chorister tours they had been on, pranks
they had done and people that they knew. Alumni of all
ages realized that their “eras” at the school
weren’t so different after all.
Each decade of graduates was represented and each
alumnus mingled with alumni from other years. The evening
reunited past relationships and sparked new ones. All
in attendance agreed that the Spring Alumni Event should
continue in the coming years. Those alumni who were
not there can watch for more alumni events to come!
